Northern Uganda has suffered through 25 years of war due to the insurgency of Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army. The unrest has destabilized the region for decades prohibiting it from developing an infrastructure to support its people. As a result of this war, and the ongoing epidemic of AIDS and malaria, there is estimated to be over 3 million orphans in Uganda. Project Hope Worldwide’s work in this region has involved establishing an orphanage, schools, a medical clinic, vocational training programs, and local churches to support the people.
