The 'Dustbin Tribe' is an emerging underclass of orphans and runaways; they reside in Kasese, a remote western equatorial town of Uganda close to the Congolese border, a region of conflict. They roam the backstreets living rough, existing on a diet of rotting foods. They are addicted to drugs and alcohol; they gamble and steal. Their future is bleak.

The habitual poverty, lack of self-esteem and motivation and stifling boredom is endemic in their daily lives. The profanity of poverty continues unabated, as does the lack of support from national or international agencies. Many of these children will be forever imprisoned by their catastrophic set of unwarranted circumstances.
