Featured in the The Washington Post Magazine: Learning Experience by Tara Bahrampour. The Washington Post sent a reporter and photographer on a trip to Uganda  with AAH Founder John Wanda and several other AAH Board Members and volunteers. The resulting in-depth feature article published in The Washington Post Magazine in May 2006 provides a vivid account of the impact AAH is making in Bumwalukani, Uganda.
