A place for restoration

We are building a village in Northern Uganda where ex-child soldiers can find a place to learn, train, heal and rediscover hope: hope for their future and hope for the restoration of their communities.

Many routes to recovery

Deep trauma does not heal easily. We are developing a programme for the long-term restoration of their lives, their livelihoods and their land.

Hope has two beautiful daughters, anger and courage:
anger at the way things are and courage to see
that they do not remain that way.

Why Northern Uganda?

We are pioneering this project in northern Uganda, as this region has been severely
affected by the injustice of child-soldiers. We are based near the town of Gulu, in a
rural area as we believe restoring the environment will play a significant part in the
recovery of these young people.

Their abduction was the worst thing that could have happened to them. Their recovery should be the best.
