"Although I grew up in a Uganda which is a developing country too, I have spent almost all of my life in the city where life is very different from rural areas. Save for a few visits, I had never really experienced rural life the same way rural people do every day for all their lives. In this case I had to walk long distances like they do, feel their dire need for clean water, scarcity of food, uncertainty about the future for themselves and their children and a general lack of the basic necessities.

With this field work, I came face to face with the daily realities of rural life in poor countries and I felt their pain. It has made me realize how important my contribution to socio-economic development is and appreciate my profession even more."
