What is a Ugandan Home Like?


Traditional huts are made from a round frame of wooden poles, with twigs / grass and mud woven into the gaps, and roofed with grass thatch. They have a single room in which a family lives, eats and sleeps.

Newer rural homes are made from bricks.They often consist of a single brick 'box' with a small window or two and a door. Poorer families are unlikely to have installed lighting or water, and cooking is often done outside so the smoke from the cooking fire can blow away.
