Uganda, is a landlocked country in East Africa. It is bordered to the east by Kenya, to the north by South Sudan, to the west by the Democratic Republic of the Congo, to the southwest by Rwanda, and to the south by Tanzania. Uganda is the world's second most populous landlocked country after Ethiopia. The southern part of the country includes a substantial portion of Lake Victoria, shared with Kenya and Tanzania. Uganda is in the African Great Lakes region. Uganda also lies within the Nile basin, and has a varied but generally a modified equatorial climate.

Uganda is endowed with alot like, Uganda has 60 protected areas, including ten national parks: Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Rwenzori Mountains National ParkKibale National ParkKidepo Valley National ParkLake Mburo National ParkMgahinga Gorilla National ParkMount Elgon National Park,Murchison Falls National ParkQueen Elizabeth National Park, and Semuliki National Park.

Uganda is one of the poorest nations in the world. In 2012, 37.8 percent of the population lived on less than $1.25 a day. People in rural areas of Uganda depend on farming as the main source of income and 90 per cent of all rural women work in the agricultural sector.

To supplement their income, rural women may engage in small-scale entrepreneurial activities such as rearing and selling local breeds of animals. Nonetheless, because of their heavy workload, they have little time for these income-generating activities. The poor cannot support their children at school and in most cases, girls drop out of school to help out in domestic work or to get married.

There is a lot to share about Uganda but in summery Uganda is a good country with stable political environment, attractive tourism sites for the education, Health, and economy are still doing bad.
