Blackened Paper

The insurgency in northern Uganda has kept thousands

of individuals and families internally displaced.

Starting life again and returning home after war can be challenging.

A few of the reasons individuals find it hard to return home are:

trauma of war

shame

fear

lack of support

starting over again

land issues

OUR RESPONSE

EVERYONE NEEDS A PLACE TO CALL HOME

Our Resettlement Program is for individuals and families from northern Uganda who fled their homes during the insurgency and are currently living in Acholi Quarter in Kampala, Uganda.

 

Everyone that receives support through our Resettlement Program is required to first complete our Trauma Counseling Program.  We want to make sure that those being resettled back home have found healing from what made them leave their home in the first place.

Ensuring the safety and welcome of families being resettled is essential.  Before any resettlement occurs we make sure that relatives, leaders, community members and even churches are all in support in welcoming and helping to see the success of their family/community

members return home after war.

We provide a variety of support for families returning home including: transportation, building of a home, seeds and farming tools, sustainable project, food support and more.

After displacement for many years, its not easy returning home.  That is why we provide regular follow up visits to ensure that beneficiaries are thriving, feeling supported and encouraged whenever needed.
