Know the Facts

Where We Work: UGANDA

Uganda has one of the youngest populations in the world, with over 78% of its citizens under the age of 30. This youth bulge presents both an opportunity and a challenge. If engaged and empowered, Uganda’s youth can be a driving force for sustainable development and economic growth. However, high unemployment and lack of opportunity can also lead to disillusionment and instability.
