4th place  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.
