Transhumanists Helping the Ugandan Mountain Community of Kyarumba

The small community of Kyarumba, Uganda, is located in the southern end of Rwenzori Mountains (aka Mountains of the Moon). It straddles a wild river that is prone to flooding. The community recently got electricity.

In January 2015, I met up with Hank Pellissier and we spent half a day in Kyarumba, getting to know the needs of the villagers. Hank provided assistance to a community woodworking-training center and to a science center funded by the Mormon Transhumanist Association, the Christian Transhumanist Association, and Alcor Life Extension Foundation.

My friends and I constructed a 4-seat swing set (with financial assistance from Hank) at the local primary school.

Yesterday (June 2015), I returned to Kyarumba. We provided some power tools to the woodworking shop, were entertained by the students at the primary school (where the swing was constructed), and provided educational games (a gift from Hank) to the science center. The center is well maintained and well used by the local students.
