life in kamwokya

life in kamwokya

Seen from above, Kamwokya looks like a hotchpotch of small shacks with rusty roofs. But, there is little space in this slum of Ugandas capital Kampala. At one place the shacks reveal the view on a field of red soil. This is the place where Robert slips into another identity. Shoeless or with old slippers, every day after school, he changes into a football player of Arsenal. While behind him the red dust is raising, Robert dreams himself in a different world. The enthusiasm for football is closely linked with the desire for a better future.
