I've started a blog, which I've got up on blogspot.com (http://wcapk.blogspot.com), which I'll also be routing through the ICAR website.

Hi David,
Glad to hear from you. I do have some contacts in Northern Uganda as well as in Kampala. What kinds of skills are you looking for. I may be available in the Spring although you would need to let me know exact dates and how long you would need me or anyone else to be engaged. Is this a short term or long term project?
Waiting to hear from you.
