Gorret Kabami receives her first mobile handset from a cousin living in Kuwait. Many of those in the family photo have moved to the city, or are part of the diaspora. Gorret says  "without a phone - to get news, for example, when someone dies - they blow a whistle in the village and people come to talk. With no phone, people write a letter and take it to Kisoro. If they leave at 7am they will be there by 10 am. To receive a letter it could be sent [via] Joseph, the pastor." (image by Martin Storey)
