Ronald Scheer (Dutch) and Joan Kelly (Irish) have lived in Kampala together now for 8 years. They have a IT company and outsource work from mainly Europe and the US.

Joan was born in Dublin and arrived the first time in Africa helping out for an Irish NGO during the Rwanda genocide in 1996.

Ronald was born in Tristan da Cunha and lived for 10 years in Africa before moving to the Netherlands where he studied Economics and Computer Science. He then worked internationaly for Philips, Digital Equipment, Compaq and HP before starting his own IT company in Netherlands in 2002 and arrived via this company for the first time in Uganda in 2005.

Both of them are also very different as Joan is a great singer and loves to work with people. She is also president of the Irish society in Uganda and chairwoman of Hospice Uganda.

Ronald on the otherhand loves exploring nature and trying out new technical things. Uganda is great for this, it gave him the opertunity to build a boat, infinity pool, lodges, enhancing the wetlands, setting up hiking and cycling tracks etc... While doing this he was also able in transfering the knowledge to local Ugandans to whom this gave them new business opertunities.
