Part of my teaching studies included a unit on child abuse. For me now it is no longer just textbook examples. This week a P4 (year 3) child came to school with swollen hands and could not walk properly. The cause? Some serious beating from his father. His crime? He went to the neighbours to read over his school books because his house had no paraffin left in the lantern.

    Wow that is child abuse! How can it be tackled within Ugandan culture? The government has a protocol?..?
