“Avoid kissing and bad touches”

It can be expensive for Ugandans to send their children beyond primary school. I was told that some girls might form relationships with much older “boyfriends” who pay for their uniforms and books — it’s more common for girls to miss out on continued education in a country with one of the world’s highest birthrates.

Uganda has been relatively effective at combating AIDS and greatly reducing HIV infection rates in the country, and there were signs on many girls’ school campuses warning them to keep their virginity.
