Thank you for your generous support of the Nabukalu community
Nabukalu is a rural area in Eastern Uganda — one of the poorest countries in the world. Many families in the region are unable to grow enough food and often children, especially girls, drop out of primary school to either work in the fields and help at home, or to get married.
A lack of access to clean water and hygienic toilets means that children are particularly vulnerable to diseases like diarrhoea. With only three health facilities in the region, all of which are under-resourced, children commonly do not receive the medical attention they need when they become ill.
