Agwata Women Educate Volunteers on Their Cultural Traditions

Older members of our Agwata group in northern Uganda were excited to share with our volunteers some of their traditional cultural practices and items from earlier times.

They shared:

  • How they carried babies on their backs and protected them from the sun with calabash head coverings and covered them with animal skins
  • How they started fires by rubbing sticks together
  • How they made dishes and baskets for preparing and eating food.
