My name is Kim and I live in Fort Portal, a beautiful part of western Uganda. I’m a development worker, in my 20’s, and my husband Michael and I run an NGO called Maranatha Health. The name of my blog ‘Buzima’ is a word from the local language here, which translates as ‘honestly’. That’s my plan – to offer an honest account of life here, good and bad. Im passionate about all sorts of things – my faith, poverty and maternal health,village life in Africa, economic justice, politics and advocacy. I especially love my husband and beautiful but mischievous little boy David, writing, dancing, good food, and living in Africa! I have no grand plan for this blog, except to share the adventures of every-day life.
