The bitter taste of sugar

The bitter taste of sugar

Lessons from Africa

Sugar is something that's loved around the world. This primary school resource is a way to explore how sugar can be harmful not only to our health, but also to many of the small scale farmers that are growing sugar cane. The land in the Kamuli district in Uganda is dominated by sugar cane, yet many of the small scale sugar cane farmers are failing to make ends meet. Your students can learn about how sugar is produced, the history of sugar and hear about the small scale sugar cane farmers whose lives are reliant on this sweet treat.
