CHAPTER ONE 1.0. Background To The Study The effect of child labour to the individual, the community and the nation at large is becoming more and more apparent. lt is for this reason that the Government of Uganda places the elimination of child labour high on its national development agenda 1 • Uganda's population has continued to grow rapidly over time. It increased from 9.5 million in 1969 to 24.2 million in 2002. Between 1991 and 2002, the population growth rate was 3.2 percent. The population is projected to have increased to 32.9 million by mid 2011 (UBOS, 2013), of which the number of children form an approximate value of I 0,090, 200; aged between 5 years to 14 years.-. ' Uganda adopted The Children Act, Chapter 59 of the Laws of Uganda on August I, 1997. Under this Act, Local Councils (LCs) are responsible for child protection. (§ l 0) If these local government councils cannot resolve a child protection case, it is brought before the family and children court. (§ 13) Section 16 provides that "the child shall have a right to legal representation" in all matters before the family and children court. The Act does not provide any additional information about the responsibilities or duties of the legal representative for the child, nor has the family and children court been funded by the government.
