The last couple of weeks I have been working on a few documentaries one on trade and another on women empowerment. All these are around our 50 years independence anniversary due October 9. I went to the eastern district of Butaleja. It was my first time there and also first time to see rice in the field! These were the sites in this beautiful land.
Child labour is still a big issue in most of rural Uganda. There were many cases i came across. Child carrying as many as 40kgs of rice to the mill.
