Story telling in Uganda 

Story telling has always been a part of the Ugandan culture. Most commonly, stories are told verbally, often outside, under the shelter of a big mango tree. 

Children's literacy in Uganda 

The 2012 National Assessment of Progress in Education findings showed that 75% of pupils in Ugandan Primary schools fail to acquire the required literary proficiency - of at least 50% by the time they get to Primary 6 (around age 12 and 13). As such, these pupils find it hard to read a story and/or other texts and understand well enough to be able to answer questions, identify opposites and write relevant composition with correct format (2).
