Ssozi Javie wins 4th place in eLearning Africa photo competition
Camera Phone – Keeping Distant Families
in Touch! (Uganda)
In this photo, my mother (red dress) is showing
relatives we were visiting in their distant village
a video of my nieces and nephew on her mobile
phone; she had recorded it in our home town a few
days earlier. It served as visual documentation for
her explanation of how the children have grown and
how they look now. Video is a very powerful tool in
Uganda, along with mobile phones, which have become
a vital device. However, not everyone can afford even a
basic mobile phone, let alone a sophisticated one.
