The 25 VHTs continued the intensive HIV/AIDS/Family Planning training course with AIC which began on Friday, March 11th. AIC affiliates led the training. As with the previous training days, lunch was provided and once training had finished, the VHTs were compensated for their travel expenses. I later met with software programmers regarding openxdata.

Friday, March 18th
I spent the day preparing for my departure before attending a meeting at MTN headquarters with Mr. Anthony Katamba, General Manager of Legal & Corporate Services. There, we discussed MTN’s partnering with LfM’s pilot project. We discussed the submission of LfM’s project proposal along with LfM’s specific needs (phones, etc.) to complete the pilot project.
I also coordinated with Winnie her duties as Program Manager while I am away. Specifically, she will ensure the VHTs are prepared to start working in the pilot project’s 25 respective villages immediately upon my return. After a final dinner with Winnie and Patrick (LfM’s driver) I then left for the airport. I will be returning to Uganda in early April to further implement the pilot project.
