The effects of this are massive structural deficiencies that inhibit the physical, mental, and educational wellbeing of the population particularly children. Schools lack infrastructure. Pupils are hungry and unfocussed. Nascent works in Malawi to help build a stable society by raising the nutrition profile of children and supporting education with teacher training, school meals and gardens.

Uganda
