Education is one of programmed it aims to improve the quality of primary education and early childhood development, leading to improved learning achievements, completion and retention. The project covers all regions of eastern c working through primary teacher colleges.
Access to primary education in Uganda has increased since 1997 when a universal primary education policy was introduced. The Millennium Development Goal of achieving universal primary education by 2015 is on track. However, the quality of education is perceived to have declined drastically over the same period. Challenges in education include low completion rates – a little over half of those enrolled complete primary school (56% of boys and 51% of girls), low literacy and numeracy levels, poor school infrastructure, and overall low quality of education services.
The poor and disadvantaged in Uganda are badly affected by preventable diseases. Health service provision and access are poor, and staff retention is a challenge. Our health programmed focuses on implementing primary (preventive) healthcare services.
Infant mortality in the three years preceding the 2014 DHS was 76 deaths per 1,000 live births, and the under-five mortality rate was 137. Infant and child mortality vary widely by geographic region with greater risk in rural areas. Overall, the likelihood of dying in infancy is greatest in the Southwest, North, and Central regions. A mothers’ education makes a big difference to child mortality. Children born to women with at least some secondary education are much less likely to die than children of uneducated mothers. Forty-two per cent of births are attended by a skilled health professional (Demographics and Health Surveys, 2006).
Access to HIV and AIDS treatment is on track to meet targets for the sustanable Development Goals though infection rates remain relatively high. The national prevalence of HIV has increased slightly to 6.7% (March 2012) which is approximately 2.3 million people.
There has been construction of a clinic in kamuli to support children and women to improve healthy but it remaind lucking due to lack of medical equipment to make it a full flagged clinic

We also include planning for and improving inclusive and sustainable livelihoods related services for marginalised groups including people with disabilities in our programme.
Current projects include: The Youth Employment and Local Governance project (2016-2020).
More than 80% of Uganda’s population lives in rural areas and about 70% of the country’s population depends on subsistence rain-fed agriculture to survive. Young people, especially in the north, have low employment opportunities and a lack of education.
There is a widespread belief that agriculture will lead to economic recovery in eastern Uganda. But there are challenges. Young people who have grown up in refugee camps are no longer familiar with agriculture, farming skills have been lost and land disputes are common.
Women do not traditionally own land and with the loss of their spouses during the war, so many women are left unable to secure a livelihood for their children. For the children who lost their parents during the war, land boundaries are also hard to trace. VSO will work to increase the income for women and young people by developing alternative sustainable livelihood opportunities.
