VHGC School in Iganga


This photograph of students and staff of the VH Government Controlled School in Iganga hints at the extent of the Indian presence in what was a relatively isolated outpost in imperial Uganda. Granted, its position along the main trainline meant that the community was going to grow and expand, but the role played by Indians in providing expertise for the infrastructure and commercial sectors of East Africa is striking.
