Photo Feature – Community Development in Uganda

BY SOPHIA KECSKES

In Uganda, community-based health promotion initiatives are vital. These pictures strive to provide a sense of life in Uganda, and depict the strong communal ties that unite individuals both in rural and urban areas. Literacy support, healthy food, and supportive communities where youth feel loved and empowered help much more to promote health in rural villages than many of the fanciest, new technologies.
