Building Plans – in the works!

Building Plans – Coming Soon

We are excited to be working on finalizing building plans to share with you soon. So far Kimera has been able to register as both a nonprofit in the States and an NGO in Uganda, this was our first major success. From there we have also acquired a beautiful 6 acres of land in Mpigi, Uganda. The land borders a natural forest home to monkeys and fresh water drinking stream.

On our last trip to Uganda we started working with an architect to design Kimera’s first building! We are in the process of finalizing these plans and the cost of building. The building process for the entire campus will be broken down into multiple phases. Once these are outlined we are excited to be rolling out a Capital Campaign by the end of 2014 and early 2015. Stay Tuned!

Team Member Highlight: Zula!

Special Profile of Team Member: Zula!

If you read Katharine’s blog from her trip to Uganda you would have noticed a major theme: Zula! Zuliaka is a large part of our success so far, like most of our team. She is our Ugandan attorney and dedicated to the futures of all Kimera children.

If you are planning on a trip to Uganda – and we hope you are – you will be treated to the special cooking of Zula as well. She is famous for her chapatti’s (a pancake like crepe) which don’t last long around the Kimera team. She is also known for her great laugh and witty comments that keep even Eddie in check! Nothing gets past Zula, when we need paperwork or connections made in Uganda she is our go-to lady. Zula has been attending conferences and government appointments on behalf of Kimera for a couple years and will continue to represent Kimera when we are up and running.
