website of deirdre carabine and michel lejeune

Welcome to our website!

We are retired educationalists working in Uganda and living in Bbunga, a quiet Kampala suburb on the shores of Lake Victoria with our canines Suubi (a rescue -- the name means "hope"), Luna (aka Little Miss Moon, another rescue), Mister Finley a Swiss White Shepherd, and two pups from Luna and Finley: Simba and Mickey.

We spent the past quarter of a century involved in university building, including starting the first online-only university in Sub-Saharan Africa, the Virtual University of Uganda

Our website includes some of the personal projects we are working on, for example: the Carabine family tree and the blog Jacana Days which tells the story of beginning our work in Uganda at Nkozi.
