The northern region of Uganda and its main city Gulu have long been marginalized, made even worse by the last 20 years of internal strife and terrible insecurity. Nearly 30,000 children have been abducted and thousands more people maimed or killed by rebels of the so-called Lord’s Resistance Army led by Joseph Kony. Up to 1.6 million people have been “living” in Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps. Nearly everything in their lives is broken down—culture, family life, morale and morality, health, economy, and education. A senior United Nations official in 2004 called it “the worst humanitarian crisis in the world.” Now, with peace finally dawning, what will be the future for these people? Certainly education will be a key.
