One of the children from Conde Hill, Teo Babirye, has a learning disability that prevents her from progressing at a level similar to that of other students in the class. However, her teacher Moreen Nakiboneka takes the time each day to work with Teo in order to help her. Moreen is a recently-graduation teacher, still full of passion despite her discouraging working conditions, a passion that helps her teach Teo and Tina. Teo's twin sister, Tina Nakato has moved on to a year higher than her. Even though Tina is in a different class, she's often caught walking by the classroom to check on her sister.

Orphan Education in Rural Uganda

With the support of a local charity, young orphans from the Conde Hill Orphanage are given the opportunity to attend the Young Cranes Primary School in Bombo, Uganda. The children lost their parents to HIV/AIDS and have no other adequate guardians to make sure they acquire the proper education they need in Uganda’s meager economy. Although Uganda is the first country in sub-Saharan Africa to implement both a universal primary and secondary education through the elimination of school fees, Young Cranes Primary School faces poor conditions and lack of sufficient resources. Neighboring countries are also determined to provide the best education they can to those in need, yet their economic struggles and poor living standards often complicate the process.
