Northern Uganda is recovering from decades of violent conflict and Northeastern Uganda is plagued by insecurity, underdevelopment and the effects of climate change. After 21 years of conflict, death, destruction and suffering in northern Uganda, peace now prevails throughout the country. Poverty, HIV, access to education and quality education remain some of the greatest challenge facing the people of Uganda. Completion of schooling, pupil teacher ratios, number of qualified teachers and low awareness of Early Childhood Development Education are some of the issues facing the Educational system.

In Uganda, we are primarily working with three outstanding organisations Watoto, COME Uganda & Childcare Kitgum Servants (CKS). In the spirit of partnership and cooperation, we have developed annual training objectives around these large organisations particular needs.
