Challenge

The recent conflict in northern Uganda led to the enforced displacement of almost two million people. By end of 2008, almost three quarters of displaced people had started returning or had returned home. In Kitgum District, however, the pace of return has been slower and uneven, largely due to the deep-seated trauma experienced by the majority of the population. On return to their former communities, people are faced with a harsh reality, a lack of basic services and few livelihood options.

Solution

This project will assist formerly displaced communities by providing educational support to children, including psychosocial support and provision of school materials, and livelihoods support to vulnerable families, including vocational training.

Long-Term Impact

The project will increase school enrollment and retention of 720 formerly abducted/war-affected children, and increase the income of 270 vulnerable households from $1 to $5 a day, enabling them to meet their children's most basic needs.
