Uganda is a landlocked nation in East Africa. Throughout the last 50 years, the country has experienced significant political turmoil through civil wars. These events have forced people to relocate from their homes, destroying infrastructure and families.
During the tough times, Ugandans have been resilient. The last decade has been peaceful and the country is slowly rebuilding. However, children still face significant barriers due to poverty and malnourishment. To break those barriers, we are helping two communities in Northern Uganda to provide more opportunities for their children.
