Human Needs

An exciting new unit has been added to the Human Studies Website.

It is designed to give young people an opportunity to think about the essential needs of human beings; those things which help us to survive and lead a “fulfilled life”. It is based on the work of the psychologist, Abraham Maslow. Maslow’s principles are applied to understanding: (a) how well human needs were met in the lives of early Ugandans, represented by the forest dwelling Twa people, (b) how well they are being met in the lives of people living in Uganda now, and (c) what changes the current generation would like to see to better meet the life goals of future Ugandans. Here is the link to it:
