Uganda is a Landlocked Country located in East Africa and is also commonly known as the ‘Pearl of Africa’.

The southern part of the Country includes a substantial portion of Lake Victoria, which is also bordered by Kenya and Tanzania. Uganda gained independence from Britain on 9th October 1962 and has a population of approximately 32.4 Million People. The Capital City of Uganda is Kampala and the Country is located on the East African plateau, lying mostly between latitudes 4 degrees north and 2 degrees south and longitudes 29 degrees and 35 degrees east. It averages about 1,100 meters ( 3,609 ft ) above sea level and slopes steadily downwards to the Sudanese plain on the north. Although landlocked, Uganda contains many large lakes besides Lake Victoria and Lake Kyoga, there are Lake Albert, Lake Edward and the smaller Lake George. Uganda is divided into 112 Districts spread across Four administrative regions of Northern, Eastern, Central and Western. The Districts are further subdivided into Sub-districts, Counties, sub-counties, Parishes and villages. The official languages are English and Swahili although multiple other languages are spoken. English became the official language of Uganda after Independence in 1962 and there are around fourty different languages that are regularly and currently used in the Country. The most widely spoken language in Uganda is Luganda dominated by the Ganda People ( Baganda ). The Lusoga and Runyankore-Rukiga dominate the southeastern and southwestern parts of Uganda respectively. Christians make up about 85% of the Country’s religions. The Roman Catholic Church has 42% with the largest number of adherents, followed by the Anglican Church of Uganda with 36%, while the Evangelical and Pentecostal Churches claim the rest of the Christian population. Islam is another religion in Uganda which represents 12% of the population. Traditional indigenous beliefs are practiced in some rural areas and are sometimes blended with or practiced alongside Christianity or Islam. Uganda is also home to the Abayudaya, a native Jewish community dating back to 1900’s. One of the world’s seven Baha’i Houses of worship is located in Gayaza on the outskirts of Kampala alongside Cathedrals, Churches and Mosques for their respective faithfuls.
