Street scene in Kabuyanda, the site of the Ruhiira Millennium Village. The Ruhiira cluster is situated in the Isingiro District of southwestern Uganda. The region is characterized as a highland region with elevations ranging between 1350m and 1850m above sea level. Road are extremely poor or non-existent, making travel between the villages and commercial centers, such as Mbarara, very difficult. As a result, connecting villagers to schools, clinics, markets, electricity, communications and local government is a significant challenge.
