It all started with a conversation at the San Diego Zoo nine years ago. Through curiosity, and his son’s study of pediatric medicine, Ron Smith became involved in a much larger cause. Smith, founder of Lansdale’s S-Bond Technologies, met Tusu Tusubira in San Diego at a conference in 2005 training Rotary leaders from around the world. “He had this great smile and was extremely welcoming,” Smith said.

While visiting the San Diego Zoo and observing an African exhibit, Smith asked Tusu what it was like viewing an African exhibit that was meant to represent his own country and continent. From there a friendship blossomed. Smith, a member of the Blue Bell Rotary Club, then commenced a relationship between his home Rotary and Tusu’s club in Uganda - Kampala North.
