Capacity Statement OverviewThe Lweza Rehabilitation Centre in Wakiso District is a training and caretaking facility for handicapped youth, especially those from destitute families. Often marginalized by society, they have little opportunity to provide for themselves and often resort to begging. With the help of ADRA Uganda and the Foods Resource Bank, these youth are given the skills they need to develop and maintain income-generating activities. Vocational training includes tailoring, carpentry, welding and metalwork, and basket weaving, and includes additional training in sustainable gardening, with emphases in poultry keeping, fruit and vegetable growing, and food processing.

Country OverviewBordered by South Sudan and the DRC, Uganda resides in a volatile region, facing challenges both within and beyond its borders. While poverty is a crisis throughout the nation, it is devastating in the north. Half of the population lives below the national average, with maternal mortality nearly double that of the south. Additionally, violence has scarred the northern region, requiring strong ADRA presence.
