A sample of results

Some of our programmes and projects in Uganda, and results of this cooperation:

  • Youth unemployment is a major problem in Uganda, which has one of the highest unemployment rates in Sub-Saharan Africa. By creating partnerships between young people, the private sector and the government, A Working Future in Uganda hopes to create a better match between the skills of young people and the demands on the labour market.
  • To ensure that the products we buy are of right quality, a legal framework that sets certain standards is needed along with regular controls to ensure its compliance. A better control of goods may increase companies’ business opportunities and at the same time improve consumers’ safety.
  • Clean water is a necessity for a reasonable life. In rural Uganda, millions of people have been lacking access to simple devices for water and sanitation for a long time. Sweden’s support of the Ministry of the Environment and Water is now entering a critical final phase.
