The village of Kinamaiga is located in the Buyende district in eastern Uganda. The village is made up of 117 households and homes are either semi permanent or grass thatched.
The community of Kinamaiga are subsistence farmers, using traditional farming methods such as hand hoes and oxen ploughs. Their crops are severely affected by pests and they often lose livestock during severe dry weather spells.
Kinamaiga shares a borehole with five surrounding villages. This means that access to clean water is unreliable and sometimes forces people to collect swamp water which is shared with livestock.
Primary school students study in the local church buildings or under makeshift structures. The closest secondary school is 15km away in a neighboring village which means that few students continue their education. The nearest health center is also 15km away.
