Uganda is a small landlocked country near the eastern side of Africa. It is known for its natural beauty in the form of national parks and its immense variety of wildlife. Uganda also contains various ethnicities which each bring a unique aspect to the joint culture of Uganda. It also brings almost 35 unique languages and dialects with each ethnicity. Even though Uganda contains a rich culture with unique traditions, it faces many social development issues, such as education, water, infrastructure, and housing issues. The poverty rate of the country is high, with slightly more than one-fifth of the population. However, the lack of infrastructure keeps people living in extreme poverty stuck in these devastating cycles of poverty. The lack of educational structure and academic infrastructure keeps children unable to access the academics that all children should be guaranteed.
