Jemma's journey to the world's largest refugee camp
Jemma* tells the story of her journey from the conflict in South Sudan to the world's largest refugee camp, Bidi Bidi in northern Uganda.
Plan International started working in Uganda in 1992 to respond to the needs of children affected by a guerilla war in Luwero district.
Since then we have worked alongside communities on many different issues to improve millions of children’s lives.
Our work is aligned with the Global Goals, the African Union’s Agenda 2063 and Uganda’s second National Development Plan. Gender equality and the empowerment of girls and women are at the centre of our work.
Our priorities include:
Ensuring children and youth, especially girls, reach their full potential in communities that promote their rights and gender equality.
