33% of Ugandans are living below the international poverty line of US$1.90 per day. I just did some small calculations and many teachers I know here in Gulu are earning less than this amount! Some teachers I know (not on the government payroll) are earning the equivalent of around US$30 per month, which is around $1 per day. And this is for their household. Some of these teachers are single parents and have many mouths to feed. It is quite incredible how they manage this. We could certainly take some house budgeting lessons from them.
