A forced “marriage” at age 14 to the LRA’s leader Joseph Kony, with whom Amony had three children

This education opportunity must be replicated in other areas in Northern Uganda. The future of the country depends on the opportunities these post-war children are given for education. They are the next generation of leaders in Uganda. If they are not rehabilitated, educated and re-integrated into society there is no guarantee that the cycle of violence will not be repeated.
So many children in Northern Uganda are excited and eager to go back to school. They pray for the opportunity. Their lives were interrupted as children and many returned as adults, uneducated and unskilled. The government is unprepared for the task of educating two, going on three, generations of children, but it must be done if there is to be any hope for recovery and self-sustenance. They are hard workers and are very willing to study hard. They are excited for the opportunity, no matter how small, to have hope in their lives once again.
It is our prayer that you will be touched by this situation in Northern Uganda and that you will be moved to help sponsor an eager-to-learn child from the war-torn area. There are schools, mostly privately funded by NGOs, but the children need money in order to participate, even if it is only for food, transportation, supplies and uniforms.
