Enduring Partnerships

May 19, 2008

Making a Difference

During the 1990s, the City of Guelph was part of a successful municipal partnership program with Jinja Uganda.  The partnership was sponsored by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA).  The partnership lasted 10 years and was led by our former Director of Community Services, Gus Stahlman.

The relationships that were developed between our two communities have endured.  Luisa Del Rosario recently returned from taking sewing machines to Jinja where she trained women in their use.

In this photo, Luisa is presenting Mr. Mohammad Bawari Kezaala Al-Hagi, the Mayor of Uganda, with a gift from the City of Guelph.
