improve life chances for poor men, women and children in Uganda. The purpose is

the poorest and most vulnerable, as a core element of Uganda’s national

building. ESP is now transitioning to Phase II in which the program will expand
to cover a total of 55 districts during the next five years and be implemented
by a Programme Management Unit (PMU).
