Summary

Children of Hope Uganda is building a new girls dormitory at its vocational school in Barlonyo, northern Uganda, the site of the February 21, 2004 massacre of 301 villages by Joseph Kony's Lord's Resistance Army. This dorm will safely house 100 war-affected girls who will be trained in tailoring and entrepreneurship, along with computer skills at the new IT Lab.

Challenge

Young women in northern Uganda struggle to overcome 20 years of conflict and atrocities by Kony's LRA, when over 25,000 boys and girls were abducted to be child soldiers and sex slaves. As the Barlonyo community recovers from the trauma of the Feb 21, 2004 massacre of 301 villager , extreme poverty remains the problem. Children of Hope Uganda trains the war-affected youth in tailoring, carpentry, bricklaying and agribusiness, as well as all-important entrepreneurship.

Solution

Equipping the new girls dormitory will give the 100 female students a safe and comfortable place to sleep and study. GOAL Global is equipping the dormitories with a complete solar powered lighting system so that the girls can study at night. What they need are double bunk beds, 4 inch foam mattresses, blankets and malaria bed nets.

Long-Term Impact

Hundreds of Barlonyo area villagers will benefit from this successful vocational school. The skills training given to the 100 tailoring students at Barlonyo Technical and Vocational Institute will allow these girls to provide for themselves and their families.
