Thank you for taking a few minutes to read my blog.
My Name is Dino Parrella and I started Dignity and Hope, which became Bluseeds - dignity and hope - three years ago.
I'd like to take you on my journey to Uganda this year from the 6th October 2018 for 2 weeks. I'll be using this blog and the usual social platforms - Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram - to report to you about our impact, emotional experiences and more. I also intend to be as transparent as possible about the challenges which we face along the way.
I truly believe in showing how we operate as fully and honestly as possible we can engage your attention, build your trust and educate you at the same time.
I'm looking forward to keeping you posted!

Back home in my safe little European bubble, I'm still recovering from the trip, all the work I did there and, sadly, the side effects of my malaria tablets!
It's been three years since we began our work in Uganda. And I can see that, along with other local initiatives in the fields of health care, family planning, hygiene, housing and so on, that Bluseeds, in enabling individuals to start a business in their own community, adds an important additional element in the development of sustainable communities. Read on and reflect - and look forward - with me.
