Social Action Report

It’s against such background that I stepped out among the many Uganda youths and volunteered my time and resources in bringing a culture of peace and ending the violent conflicts. I mobilized the young people in 15 secondary schools in the two districts of Kitgum and Gulu, to take part in bringing peace to the region.  Among other things, we are now also calling the government of Uganda to establish a ministry of peace, a ministry that will in addition to other functions foster a culture of peace through education and promote sustainable economic and social development.

In order to improve the lives of millions of children living in IDP camps in northern Uganda, we are planning to establish two social rehabilitation centers with adequate psychosocial support and counseling services to enable war traumatized children in Kitgum district, Northern Uganda, to develop self confidence, self respect and hope for the future.  Recreational activities in games and sports will be provided to help develop social cohesion with other children, happiness and wealth, brain development, as well as to acquire and improve talents in game and sports for the children who are in and out of school.

Children living in IDP camps were sent Vermont Teddy Bears with personal messages from children of Pulaski Middle School, New Britain, Connecticut; Colchester Schools, Colchester, Vermont; and Champlain Valley Union High School, Hinesburg, Vermont
