UGANDAN PEOPLE

Many westerners can be apprehensive about visiting Uganda. However the local people are so friendly and love to have visitors to their country. It is a very safe place to walk around both during the day and at night in both rural and urban areas.

Africans are very community oriented.  They take care of each other, watch each other's children, and are extremely family-oriented.  The African family not only consists of one's immediate family, but also their extended family.As well, most East African people groups are male-dominated.  Women and children often do not eat with the men.  Men are served first and are the dominant figure in the family.

People here travel around by using taxis or bodas which are motorbike taxis and are a lifeline for people in these communities in order to travel to hospitals and appointments.
