Uganda

In much of northern and eastern Uganda, 20 years of civil war took a heavy toll on children. It is estimated that as many as 26,000 children were abducted, raped and forced into servitude and military combat. It is also the country with the world’s most youthful population, with children younger than age 15 accounting for more than half of the population. And many are still recovering from the effects of the country’s two decades of conflict as well as its high incidence of HIV and AIDS.
