Get To Know the Pearl of Africa

Uganda is a beautiful country in East Africa with exotic wildlife and diverse landscapes. We are thrilled to be working alongside some magnetic entrepreneurs in the city of Jinja, the home of the Source of the Nile River and a major tourist stop for thousands of visitors each year. 

Population

Around 42 Million people live in Uganda, with over 50 languages spoken across the country.

Economy

According to the World Bank, the percentage of the population living with less than $1.90 (2011 PPP) a day declined from 53.2 percent in 2006 to 34.6 percent in 2013. 

Wildlife Diversity

Uganda is home to the famous endangered mountain gorillas and over 1,000 bird species.
