Save the Children International

Save the Children interviewed almost 300 children and adults across Uganda, about the impact of COVID-19 and lockdown measures on children’s lives and wellbeing. 

This report finds that children are increasingly vulnerable and at risk from an in crease in violence and abuse, stress, poverty, and hazardous coping strategies such as child labour and child marriage. At the same time, vulnerable children have less support than usual. 

The findings show that child protection must be at the heart of the national COVID-19 response, and why Government and donors should invest more in keeping children safe.
