UgandaThe Republic of Uganda is a landlocked country in East Africa. It is bordered on the east by Kenya, on the north by Sudan, on the west by the Democratic Republic of the Congo, on the southwest by Rwanda, and on the south by Tanzania. The southern part of the country includes a substantial portion of Lake Victoria, within which it shares borders with Kenya and Tanzania. Uganda takes its name from the Buganda kingdom, which encompassed a portion of the south of the country including the capital Kampala.
Uganda is home to many different ethnic groups with an overall population of 30.9 million. 85% of the population live in rural areas and more than two thirds of the country’s poor people are farmers. Uganda’s agricultural sector has great potential with favourable weather conditions and current political stability, but successive periods of political change in the last 30 years have affected rural people in particular. Uganda is known for its “Night commuters” – children who walk miles every night to avoid abduction by the rebel “Lord’s Resistance Army” which kidnaps children to work as soldiers or to be used as wives. 2 million children (approximately 20%) of all Ugandan children are orphans who have lost one or both parents to the HIV/AIDS virus
