Uganda has one of the largest populations of young people in the world with over 56 percent of its 37 million people under the age of 18, and more than 52 percent under age 15. Children are also the single largest demographic group living in poverty in Uganda. Street children are a security threat, and therefore, need to help them become useful citizens.
Kampala is receiving the bulk of these children. It is common sight to see street children at traffic lights and other busy spots in Kampala’s Central Business District. Poverty and lack of proper care from parents and guardians are cited as leading push factors for run-away children. We YWAM Kampala are trying to help these children to unite with their families. Sponsor a child to make this vision success. Youth With A Mission is committed to fulfill the great commission “Go and make disciples of all nations. Matt 28:18”
