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.
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.
