Child Sponsor Uganda

Uganda, with its population of 34.5 million, is a landlocked country in east Africa bordered to the north by the new Republic of South Sudan, to the south by Rwanda and Tanzania, to the east by Kenya and by the Democratic Republic of Congo to the west. Following independence from the UK in 1962 Uganda was subjected to harsh regimes, no more so than under Idi Amin, however since 1986 the country has made significant social and economic progress. However, after decades of conflict, the country, with scarce natural resources in the first place, continues to be one of the poorest countries in the world with sub standard health care, high rates of malnutrition and

diseases such as malaria rampant, assisted by less than half of those living in Uganda having access to safe drinking water.  Today Uganda is in 164th place out of 186 countries and territories in 2013 when ranked in terms of life expectancy, literacy, access to knowledge and the living standards of a country with a life expectancy of 54 yrs with over half the population aged under 15yrs. There are an estimated 3.5 million children orphaned through AIDS/HIV, that's nearly one in ten of the country's entire population. Young people are often malnourished due to regular food shortages and there is generally poor access to health and social services across the country.

Child sponsor programs in Uganda focus on working with orphaned and abandoned children, promoting access to healthcare together with prevention programs to reduce the spread of AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis and promoting education in a country where 18% of children never enrol at school and a further 66%, who have enrolled, drop out during their primary and secondary school years. The situation is even worse for girls, reflected in literacy rates which for for males stand at 77% however this drops to just 57% for females.
