Kitgum (Uganda) Print E-mail
Kitgum Town is located in Northern Uganda, being the administrative centre of Kitgum District, with a population of 40.000. The situation in Kitgum Town is characterised by 3 major factors – a) the exponential growth of the population, worsened by influx of people – both semi-permanently and as night commuters – fleeing from insecurity in the villages due to rebel activity, b) the extremely low per capita income and inadequate access to external funding (government or international) and c) the lack of human resources as a result of the insecurity.
