I am John and I am the Local Community Leader for the Namungo parish. This means that it is my duty to solve local disputes over land or water and to stop any fights. I do this by organising committee meetings where everyone can be heard in a calm manner. I live here with my wife Violet and my children. My first-born is Harriet lives far from us with her grandfather so that she can reach a secondary school. Daniel is 15 and has just finished Primary school. Then there is Victoria, Deus, Desire and Shanita.
I am a farmer and I have a small patch of land where I grow maize, beans, bananas and tomatoes. If we grow enough, Violet takes the left-over to market to sell along with our cash-crop, coffee. I was worrying that we would not have the funds to send Daniel to secondary school with his elder sister. Now that Pioneer High School is coming to us, I can hope that all of my children can continue after primary school to a bright future. I really think that secondary school is an excellent idea because in the future our children will be able to improve our government and our society.
