Deep in rural Eastern Uganda, communities have been literally left behind by society. Their infrastructure is almost non-existent, their health systems rudimentary, their education unaffordable and living environment degraded. This has meant poor food shortages, extreme poverty and poor hygiene, health and nutrition. These issues hit young people particularly hard, many of whom end up in the care of other families in the community.
