According to the US Department of Labor (USDOL) 2014 report, Uganda’s child labour prevalence rate stands at 30%. A total of 2,700 children are involved in the worst forms of child labour (including child soldiers and child labourers in mining) and 73,290 are engaged in domestic slavery. The USDOL report highlights the lack of primary school completion rates (53.1%), high levels of poverty, high numbers of orphans (HIV/AIDS) and child-headed households, traditional norms pushing children to contribute to the household income, combined with upcoming industrial growth with a high demand for labour.

The initial planned duration of a project should be 33 months, starting on 1 April 2016.
