In the Ngogwe community in central Uganda, families typically grow their own food. However, harvests often fail due to infertile soil and ineffective farming methods and nearly half of the population struggle to have enough food to eat year-round. 

Child protection is a significant problem in Ngogwe. There is a high incidence of child abuse, neglect and child marriage in the community.
