2020 Uganda Project

Why are World at Play working in Rwamwanja?

Rwamwanja hosts around 78,000 refugees, mostly from the Democratic Republic of Congo.  World at Play volunteers will run sport and developmental play sessions with children and young adults in the settlement.

We believe in the power of play.  Many of these young people will have had their childhood taken away from them and will have experienced fear and enormous hardship. We aim to bring fun and excitement into their lives and aid development.

68% of the population of Rwamwanja is under 18. Employment opportunities are very limited with just one secondary school in the camp. The school serves the refugees and the local community but only 3% of young refugees have access to this school.
