With over 1.4 million refugees, Uganda is the country with the third largest number of refugees in the world and the largest in Africa. The refugees come from some of the worst conflicts in the world. More than 60% are children. Most of these have fled brutal conflicts and have witnessed horrific violence or lost family and friends. The schools are overcrowded, which results in many not getting the education they are entitled to. At the same time, 25% of children of primary school age and 86% of young people of upper secondary school age have no schooling at all. (UNHCR 2020).

In Kyangwali refugee camp alone, there are 113,000 refugees, of whom 82% are women and children and over 50% of children are of school age. Only 17172 children went to school in 2018 (UNCHR 2018). Children have a long way to go to school, lack access to food and psychosocial assistance programs due to lack of financial opportunities, or dependence on the World Food Program where each family receives only 8 USD (approx. 65 kroner) per person per month for food.

P4T Uganda has achieved a lot with its work here, but there are many more who need help and assistance. Below you can read more about what we can achieve with your support.


Here you can find out more about how you can make a difference in the lives of refugees. Your support is valuable, and only small amounts can have a big effect.

A monthly gift to us will be of great help with our work with children and families affected by war and conflict. By donating to P4TNorge every month, you will give refugees education, protection and job opportunities for a better future. As little as 50 kroner can make a big difference!

Help a child getting
an education

It is estimated that 19% of refugee children at primary school level have a higher age than the school level would indicate. This is due to lack of schooling and language problems. 60% of primary school children in Kyangwali do not have access to education, have had to leave or have never started. Education is the key to giving girls and boys the knowledge and skills to live productive, fulfilling and independent lives.

Give a family a
better life

Due to a high level of illiteracy, extreme poverty, unemployment, and vulnerable people, P4T works to provide education and training to enable people in society to create their own jobs and better income opportunities.

Limited financial opportunities and dependence on the World Food Program where each person receives $ 8 (approximately 65 kroner) per month for food makes it difficult to have funds for other things a family needs.

Support our nursery and school

The schools are overcrowded, which leads to many students dropping out. The student / teacher rate is as high as 1: 200 compared to the authorities' standard of 1:53. This leads to uncertain learning and a troubled environment.

Building good and safe classrooms means that more students will receive an education, and the chance of premature marriage and pregnancy as well as students dropping out is reduced. Not least, the teacher gets more time for the students when the class is smaller.

We want to make everyday life safer for children

Uganda is home to more than 1.4 million refugees and 60% of these are children, including many who have experienced sexual abuse, who have come alone or have escaped from their families in need of protection.

40% of girls in Uganda get married before the age of 18, and 10% of them before the age of 15. Around 35% of girls drop out of school because of this, while 23% drop out due to pregnancy.
