In Bridge the Gap to Uganda, host and global explorer, Chris Bashinelli, travels the world to experience life outside of his hometown — Brooklyn, New York. In this episode, he visits the Ruwenzori Mountain range of rural Uganda to see how fair trade has helped lift farmers out of extreme poverty. Once there, he learns how to “impregnate” a vanilla flower, rides a motorcycle taxi through the luscious green mountains, and runs screaming through the woods while being attacked by venomous bees- all in the name of cultural exchange. Each character he meets, from the bee keeper, to the goat herder, to the seamstress, has used their fair trade earnings to make a better life for their families.
