The Youth Watch 2012 report for Uganda is a wide-ranging study of the aspirations and challenges of Uganda’s youth, published by BRAC in partnership with The MasterCard Foundation.

The study assesses the vibrancy of youth in the world's youngest country. Its findings are important for those confronting the challenges of a demographic "youth bulge" in developing countries.

 

BRAC’s internal research and evaluation unit reached out to every corner of Uganda, using focus groups, case studies, and a survey of over 5,000 people aged 15 to 30, from all settings and walks of life.
