Engage in Uganda
Uganda, officially known as the Republic of Uganda, is a landlocked country situated in East Africa. With a troubled past, this nation has undergone a remarkable transformation, emerging as a country of relative stability and prosperity. Independent from British rule since 1962, Uganda has experienced political upheaval, including coups and the brutal military dictatorship of Idi Amin in the 1970s. However, amidst these challenges, Uganda has made significant progress under the leadership of President Yoweri Museveni, who came to power in 1986. The country has also faced a long-running insurgency in the north led by the Lord’s Resistance Army, causing immense human suffering. Despite these hardships, Uganda has managed to rebuild, restore stability, and achieve a degree of economic success. Today, Uganda boasts a diverse culture with English and Swahili as its official languages and has a population of 45.8 million people. It is known for its vibrant broadcasting scene, encompassing over 200 radio stations and approximately 30 TV networks. As the country looks towards the future, Uganda aims to transition from a peasant economy to a modern and prosperous nation by 2040, supported by the World Bank’s Country Partnership Framework.
