Sorry for the silence! This month nothing has changed from our daily field work - we are busy as usual. As we approach the end of April, we also approach the end of the first school term (there are three terms in the Ugandan curriculum). Which means we are also checking on every single institutional improved cook stove’s condition as we take advantage of the holidays in May to provide the free annual maintenance as children stay home.
We are also undergoing some auditing exercises: our internal Simoshi mini audit of our accounts with Base Associates, the World Bank’s funded project audited by KPMG in Uganda (see picture below) and soon entering into our first ever verification exercise (sort of an auditing) with the Designated Operational Entity KBS for our carbon finance Project Activity. Exciting times for us - let alone the swimming in paper, but indeed looking forward to seeing the outcomes.
