THE TRUST FOR CHILD SOLDIERS

SMALL – LOCAL – DIRECT

Northern Uganda endured a 20 year-long war in which nearly two million people were displaced. The fighting stopped over a decade ago but its impact is felt across the region. 

We support individuals and families in Northern Uganda with:

  • Direct cash grants

  • Business guidance

  • Ongoing advice and support

Our support is entirely provided by volunteers, mostly from the community in Gulu. We seek to provide a sense of family and of safety.

BACKGROUND

The Lord’s Resistance Army war lasted twenty years, with two million people displaced. Many in Northern Uganda are still affected by the aftermath of conflict, in material, social and physical ways.
