In many low-income countries, proper education has remained a privilege for those who can afford it. Uganda is no exception. In his contribution for D+C, our Ugandan author Ronald Ssegujja Ssekandi takes a look at the education of girls and young women in his country.

Ronald also gives insights into the project "Girls With Tools". It facilitates young women's access to vocational training.
