People are nomadic herders
The men look after the cattle and the women the home
The local river dries up three days after it rains
Building Schools / Moroto School
|Project Type:||Building Schools|
|Current State:||Rebuilt in 2002|
Moroto literacy school in Moroto is situated outside the chief town of the Moroto District of north eastern Uganda (West of Mount Moroto). It is home to the Karamajong people, a nomadic herding community (similar to the Masai). The area is very unstable and instead of the traditional weapons the Karamajong carry Ak-47s. There is a high level of poverty and Moroto is far from the developed capital of Kampala.
The Literacy school was the first school that Abaana funded in Uganda, and was built in partnership with Fields of Life.
