Education of War Affected Children in Gulu and Amuru Districts, Northern Uganda

This project aims to improve the primary education system for six communities badly affected by a recently ended civil conflict in Gulu and Amuru Districts of Northern Uganda. Particular emphasis is being given to ensure former child soldiers and orphans attend school and receive appropriate support to stay in school and learn. These aims will be achieved by re-building the school buildings which had fallen into ruin, training teachers on how to support, help and teach traumatised children and establishing income generating initiatives for the parent teacher associations to maintain the schools.
