Uganda, officially the Republic of Uganda, is a landlocked country, with a troubled history, set astride the equator in East Africa.
Striving to become a country of relative stability and prosperity, and with a burgeoning youth population, Uganda continues to face numerous challenges. This includes its persistent poverty and struggle to adequately invest in the health, education and economic opportunities of its children.
The country has also had to contend with a brutal 20-year insurgency in the north and an influx of refugees fleeing hunger, instability and violence from neighboring countries. In fact, Uganda is now the largest refugee-hosting nation in Africa, with nearly 1.4 million refugees. There are fears that there will soon be nearly 1 million child refugees in Uganda.
While there has been some progress for Uganda’s children, enormous gaps remain – with too many still dying from preventable causes, suffering from malnutrition, and not getting an education. In the north, Ugandan children face violence, poverty, scant food and dismal humanitarian conditions. Children in Uganda need your help.
