Pallisa District is situated to the east of Kampala approximately 3 hours by car from the capital. Roads within Pallisa District can be difficult however, this is where the real Uganda exists. Pallisa grows rice as its main crop in its many wet lands.

Chris Wilkinson first visited Pallisa with National Programme and Training Commissioner Tom Maxwell Ngobi in 1998. A friendship with the District Executive Commissioner brought a surprise letter from the Bulandira Disables Association asking for help in establishing a Group for disabled Scouts at the school. Uganda has many disabled young people as a result of wars and disease. Care in the past has been neglectful but under the present government in Uganda a more caring approach is being taken.

Peter and Betty Scurry with Eric and Marie Goulding and Marion Stagg will be visiting this project at the end of April 2002.

Plans are being layed for a project visit in 2003
