The Westmont women’s basketball team traveled to Uganda on a mission trip over the summer and learned of the tremendous needs in the areas they visited.
“It changed everyone that went. It really changed our lives seeing what we saw and experiencing what we experienced,” said Westmont coach Kirsten Moore at Monday’s Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table press luncheon. “There were so many ways we wanted to help and give back. We saw so many needs while we were over there. The one we unanimously felt passionate about was a buying a cow, or two or three for this village in northern Uganda, where they have this goal on a farm of starting a dairy. They have one and their goal is to get six.” more
