Oxfam has been working in Uganda since the 1960s focusing both on development and humanitarian program to support practical innovative ways for people to lift themselves out of poverty. All that is reflected in this report is as a result of the work that Oxfam and more than 30 partners have jointly delivered in Uganda this past year 2014-2015. We reached a total of 600,000 people:
- 70,000 people supported with appropriate humanitarian assistance.
- 350,000 people supported to increase incomes and food security.
- 180,000 people supported to ensure that women and men know their rights and have greater influence on decisions affecting their lives.
