Baltimore, MD (IOCC) — The one-room, red-brick village school near the shores of Lake Victoria in Butembe, Uganda, fills quickly each morning as hundreds of children, barefoot and humbly dressed, file in and sit shoulder to shoulder on the packed earth floor to receive their lessons. One teacher provides instruction for 500 students from kindergarten to eighth grade in two shifts, with children waiting outside for their class to be called. There are no desks, chairs or books, only a solitary chalkboard at one end of the room used by the teacher to instruct them in reading and math.
Katente, Uganda (IOCC) - Dawn breaks along the central plain of Uganda, about 60 kilometers north of the capitol Kampala. Far off the main road linking Kampala with the Lake Victoria commercial port of Jinja, children lie in wait near the trenched-ditches along dirt roads, waiting for white ants to climb out of their hills before the heat of the sun drives the insects underground again.
