Abstract

WILSON, A.  and  LETšOSA, R.S.. Principles for poverty alleviation among the youth in Northern Uganda. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2010, vol.44, n.1, pp. 181-200. ISSN 1018-6441.

This article deals with the statistical data and analysis concerning poverty among the young people in Uganda. The poverty is continuously ascending, with the most affected region being Northern Uganda. The major cause of poverty in Uganda has been the "South-North divide" fuelled by poor political leadership, that divides people along the lines of politics and ethnicity. Poverty has caused many young people of Northern Uganda to resort to rebellion against the government currently in power. This has led to unending political instability and civil strife most especially in Northern Uganda. In this article attention is given to the conflict in Northern Uganda and attempts are made to propose some amicable resolutions. The discussion includes the current poverty scenario in Northern Uganda and possible strategies for reducing the poverty rate that has caused much damage in Northern Uganda.

Keywords : alleviation; poverty; youth.
