Here in Uganda, the majority of people in communities in urban slums are poor who in most cases did not get the opportunity to complete secondary education. Different Actors in Development have proven that children born by uneducated parents have bigger chances of not accessing education also. Here in Uganda education at all levels is expensive and therefore does exclude the poor. The Universal Primary Education by the Uganda government which was to be free has never been free and therefore excludes the poor. We all know that many challenges faced by these poor people is connected to that lack of knowledge. Initiatives aiming at different alternatives for Adult Education here in Uganda through informal education have not been politically supported and therefore not funded.
In this situation the common people have been left with no any other options apart from ignorance. One among the best options to address this is through funding to informal education known as adult education which should give people the chance to learn and thereafter come up with other solutions. Many people use these traditional cooking styles of firehoods and three stones here in Uganda just because they are ignorant on other available options. On top of informal education we need community dialogues on how to shift from these traditions to new ways.
