A Shy Girl

This young girl lives with her family in a small village near Namungalwe, Iganga District, Uganda. I was there to interview her parents about the impact that NGO's like the Uganda Village Project have had in their village. She was initially quite terrified of me and my camera. But, after some gentle coaxing, she warmed up to me and posed with her parents in several photos.
