#blogHOPE 2014 - The Adventure Begins

We are so excited to have the #blogHOPE team in Jinja! Today was their first jigger removal in Wakisi - a new experience for most of the team. Without hesitation they were washing feet, removing jiggers, and fitting the children with Sole Hope shoes. They have already been busy writing stories about their first-hand experiences working on the ground with Sole Hope. Each day they will be inviting you to follow along with their journey on blogHOPE.org. The journey is just starting, but we cannot wait to see where it leads. Here's to an amazing week with these amazing ladies! Photo thanks to @wanderingwithmary.
