Hi - my name is Cathy O'Brien and I taught in Masaka, Uganda from 1967 to 1972.

During that time, I was friendly with a Peace Corps Volunteer named Yvette Moss. Her tour ended in 1968. She taught at The Aga Khan Masaka Senior Secondary school.

Yvette was originally from Alabama, I do not remember the city. I lost touch with her in the early 1970's.If any one has any information as to her whereabouts, I would be greatly appreciative.

I was not with the Peace Corps. I am Canadian and worked for the Canadian External Aid Department(later known as CIDA).

If anyone can help me, please email me:

I am Mechtilda (Matilda) Taiso, a former Commerce student at Tororo Girls' Secondary School. I was taught by a USA Peace Corp teacher called Edna Lee from 1969 to 1970. I became very fond of her and she also liked me.

I was told when she left Uganda, she went to South America.

Please, kindly help me find her!! I have spent days and nights trying to trace her but all in vain! I even named my daughter by her name who has passed away withoug ever finding Edna Lee!!

I can be reached on e-mail:
