Unfortunately, majority of Ugandans oversees have failed to fit in the job markets because they lack practical skills yet the workplace oversees demand 80% practical knowledge; this is because of the poor education system in Uganda which is largely theoretical. In addition, Ugandans oversees lack proper job orientation on encountering new cultures, needs and basic laws of the host countries yet most jobs for especially domestic workers oversees do not require high of academic background. Consequently, Ugandans have been cheated by employers or abducted by human trafficking agents, raped; and others work for a short time; get frustrated and return home with no savings. Ugandan institutions annually graduate about 40,000 youth and the local industry and government can only absorb about 8,000 bobs; this means majority youth in Uganda are job seekers who later find their way to oversees.
As a government, Uganda understands the benefits of exported Labour, the role that government can play to ensure that the sector is regulated, managed by the relevant Ministry, guidelines are developed to guide companies engaged in exporting Labour. For example, Government developed the Employment (recruitment of Ugandan migrant workers abroad) Regulations in 2005 and Guidelines on Recruitment and Placement of Uganda migrant workers abroad in 2013. There is only need to raise awareness of these regulatory frameworks and ensure that they are being followed by agencies into the Labour export business. As a result several and genuine companies have also sprung up in the Labour export business to assist migrant workers locate jobs in host countries and travel; however, very few help the migrant workers acquire or align their skills to the nature of jobs.
