    Showing our appreciation to a great partner in Kyaka

    Day 173

    Thanking a Friend

    For our last day of change in Kyaka, we wanted to give back to a great friend – OPM (the Office of the Prime Minister). Throughout our time in the refugee settlement, they helped connect us with people with lots of ideas for how to make their community a better place to be.

    While we met with OPM, we realized that they only had one couch for the refugees and staff members that they meet with on a daily basis.

    This couch had seen better days.

    OPM told us, “How can we best serve if we do not have a nice area to serve in?” We agree! So we headed to town to grab a new couch.

    We came back with two nice office quality couches fit for hours for comfortable meetings!

    Thank you to OPM for being everything you do with us and for refugees in Kyaka!
