The Problem

Uganda has been praised to be the highest number of refugees in the country who come from different African countries (Democratic Republic of the Congo, South Sudan, Somalia, Burundi, Rwanda, Eritrea, Ethiopia, etc) and actually has more than 1.4 million refugees with a prediction of an increase according to the UNHCR 2018 statistics.

Some of the refugees live in the urban cities of Uganda but a very big number settles in refugee camps.

Uganda itself is one of the highest youth unemployment rates worldwide, the reality is that if a youth in Uganda is unemployed, what about a young refugee? This employment has led the refugees to be seen as a burden when actually they are full of diversified potentials that can not only benefit themselves instead of being dependent but also can benefit the host country.
