Teenage Pregnancies in Uganda

The teenage pregnancy rate of 25% in Uganda is worrying though it may seem low compared to 28% in Sub-Saharan countries and West and Central Africa. Young mothers in Uganda risk poor maternal and child health, being isolated, attempting unsafe abortions, failure to continue with school, and poverty.

A total of 354,736 teenage pregnancies were registered in 2020, and 196,499 in the first six months of 2021. According to UNICEF estimates

We have initiated a program to help young girls and women to address the problem: Healing and Resilience Training (HART) Uganda for Young Mothers

Environmental conservation

Uganda is experiencing significant impacts of climate change, which include changing weather patterns, drop in water levels, and increased frequency of extreme weather events like floods, as well as drought, whose social economic impacts make communities very vulnerable. Currently this is only 30% of the forestland in Uganda or about 1.5 million hectares or 7% of the total land area. With deforestation estimated at 1% per annum. This means by 2054, the forested land will be no more.

Physical impairment in Uganda

Disability cases are many in Uganda, and out of  45million population, 12.4% are disabled. The world disability population is 15%.

World Action Fund has provided wheelchairs and prosthetics with support to 1250 beneficiaries in Uganda, many children are able to join school, men and women are able to start their business due to the available mobility devices and physiotherapy and physical works. We still need many to be supported with your support this is possible. Many who never sat and walk able able to walk normally, the longer we wait the more disability cases will increase, let’s close the gap NOW.

Wildlife Poaching and Trafficking in Uganda

In Uganda forest covers are significantly lost every year and wetlands adversely degraded and human settled and use of fossil fuel and old auto motives and poorly controlled automation and urban planning all contributes to carbon emissions.

Climate change can be overwhelming. The science is complex, and when it comes to future impacts, there are still a lot of unknowns. While real solutions will require action on a global scale, there are choices you can make in your day-to-day life to lessen your personal impact on the environment

Train A Girl Project

The current education system trains girls as job seekers not job creators. Many girls who have the chance to attain education are not ready to go in for agricultural work even when it is available but prefer white collar/office jobs. Studying the forms, causes and consequences of unemployment, illiteracy and proposing strategies for prevention of these relatively universal problems is an important but insufficient mission in Arua, West Nile Region. We need to rescue them in vocational training. Read more about this project
