Sponsor a Child in Uganda

Demonstrate the love of Christ to a Ugandan child!

Spotlight on Uganda

The Republic of Uganda is a landlocked country in eastern Africa where agriculture is the most important sector of the economy, employing more than 80 percent of the work force. Although the number of people living in poverty decreased from 56 percent in 1992 to 31 percent more recently, poverty remains extremely high in rural areas and in northern and eastern Uganda.

  • Most Ugandans need to work two or three jobs simply to survive.
  • Nearly 70 percent of Uganda's population lives on less than U.S.$1 a day.
  • Medical care is scant, with only four doctors and 28 nurses per 100,000 people.
