Tuesday, November 5, 2013 – Gorilla Trekking and Project Scoping

All of our team went out looking for Gorillas.  They came out sage and with great stories.  The excitement of being so close in the wild shoed on their happy and scary faces.

I went last year so I was out scoping a unique internship program for Youth.  I was most impressed with this vocational training program that the owners run as a profit making venture as well as help over 100 youth.

The three areas are art for disabled youth

And the most impressive one was mechanics training.  The place was really busy with commercial customers
