... is a good example. It's borders were set by the British in 1900 when they built the railroad. At the time there were 2 million people from 42 different tribes, speaking different languages.

The hills on the way there were tricky to navigate because there were streams that were forming because the water was not soaking into the dirt quickly enough. Some areas of the path were green in ...

What is amazing about our experience at the school so far, is that even with a small number of students we are making a huge impact. Those attending the last few days are getting the ultimate health education experience too.
