Good Words From People
We continually experiment. We fail quickly and productively. We use feed back to guide our course.

His Excellency Gen Yoweri Kaguta Museveni
President of the Republic of Uganda
"We must remember that one determined person can make a significant difference and that a small group of determined people can change the course of history."
"To be prepared for war is one of the most effective ways of preserving peace."
"Great achievement is usually born of great sacrifice and is never the result of selfishness."
