About Uganda

Known as the Pearl of Africa, Uganda is located in East Africa.  Like Kenya, Uganda suffers with high rates of HIV infection (6.5% of the population), and communities contain high numbers of orphans and child headed households.  For many years the northern part of Uganda experienced significant internal conflict as a result of the civil war between the government and the Lord’s Resistance Army, leading to the deaths of thousands and internal displacement of over one million people.

Family Impact in Uganda

Family Impact was started in Uganda in 2004, and is based in Kampala. There has been a strong outreach program through Lifeskills training in secondary schools, parent training in churches and communities as well as marriage strengthening seminars.
