Uganda has one of the youngest populations on the African continent (UNICEF, 2015), Children comprise up to 56% of Uganda’s population, yet they continue to be seen as secondary. By 2014, Uganda had a population of 40 million people, including about 19 million children (UNICEF Uganda statistics, 2019).
The living conditions for this important group of the Ugandan society is anything you would call undesirable. Children continue to live in conditions characterized by inadequate access to education and health services, biting poverty in homes, exploitation and violence.

This lays the foundation for healthy development and a lifetime of benefits to the child who can grow to be a positive and active member of their family, community and society.
