Mission Statement

In preparation for our service in Uganda, our team decided to create a mission statement. We wanted to write something that would provide direction and vision to our projects.
A couple weeks ago we got together as a team and brainstormed ideas that were important to us. We talked about goals we wanted to accomplish and general principles we wanted to employ to reach them. Even our out-of-state volunteers contributed by emailing us their ideas. We organized our ideas into a few different phrases. Then we voted on the 5 proposed mission statements and narrowed it down to the follow statement which we feel best articulates our purpose:

As a team we will serve with passion and fearless humility to develop knowledge through hard work, impact and empower the people of Uganda, and leave sustainable improvement.
