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.
The given living conditions for children in Uganda undermine the four cardinal rights of a child to survival, development, protection and participation. Kidnapping, child murdering, and child sacrifice remain widespread in Uganda.
We pursue a child led development path. SAF delivers its model for social change by training local Children and youth who often lack the opportunities for education and employment, and then mobilizing them to improve the care for their community’s most vulnerable babies and children. 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.
