It has a population of 45 million people and it is one of the fastest growing countries in Africa. The country has the world’s youngest population with a median age of 15.7 years.

Uganda is blessed with the longest river (River Nile) in the world on top of the other entire beautiful physical feature. 70% of Uganda’s land is used for farming and agricultural work. 

However, Uganda is one of the developing countries in the world which are struggling to make sure that her people stop living below the poverty line.

Poverty is elevated by factors like high fertility rates which mean a woman gives birth to an average of 5 children and this brings about incidences such as Child neglecting and abandoning, increased numbers of street kids, unsafe environment, to mention but a few.
