Uganda

“Africa’s longest war” has affected northern Uganda for over two decades. In the last few years it has been pushed into neighboring countries where crimes against humanity continue at the hands of the brutal Lord’s Resistance Army. While the people in northern Uganda are now experiencing relative peace, the traumas of war remain and long-term healing is needed.

Our projects with Freedom in Creation inspires healthy sustainable community with art, water and global education. Through grassroots community development, we empower youth and women with art as therapy and entrepreneurship education, enabling them to bring vital resources to their communities. Connecting development programs with international classrooms, we enrich global education with participatory and service learning.  This video gives a nice overview to the breadth of involvement to empower the Uganda youth.
