Uganda

Economic opportunities in Uganda are greater in big cities, such as Kampala, than rural areas. The country’s metropolitan areas therefore have enormous appeal, attracting a lot of migrant workers. These workers include children, who are vulnerable to trafficking, labour and sexual exploitation.

Our work in Uganda

Almost 40% of children who work in Kampala’s informal sector report being brought to the capital city through child trafficking. They are exploited as cheap labour. At a young age, they are forced to help their families by working or being sexually exploited.

We take a stand against this child exploitation. We provide children a safe place, education, information and medical and legal help. Join our fight. Stop child exploitation.
