The virus has kept schools in Uganda closed since March. While salaries for teachers employed in government schools have kept coming, an estimated 150,000 teachers in private schools have not been paid for months.
Now, some like Brenda Kemigisha are doing small businesses to survive. She has started a shop selling children’s clothes and shoes.
Until March, she had made her living as a secondary school teacher.
But all that changed when the coronavirus pandemic hit Uganda.
