Compassion began working in Uganda in 1980 and now have over 71,000 children participating in Compassion’s Child Sponsorship Program activities at more than 260 child development centres. Discover more about the country with our top pictures from Uganda:
Lush fields may not be the first image that comes to mind when thinking about African countries, but the generally rainy climate keeps the Ugandan countryside beautifully green.
Almost 16 per cent of Ugandans live in urban areas.
Which isn’t surprising considering that more than 80 per cent of the population work in the agriculture industry.
Some families live in thatched rondavels (huts) which are made of stick frames and mud and covered with a straw or reed roof.
And no matter what country they live in…
…children’s smiles are simply awesome!
