For nearly 20 years, civil war raged in Uganda as the Lord’s Resistance Army launched a violent insurgency. The fighting was concentrated in the Northern Region of the country, where over 2 million people were displaced and thousands of children were abducted and forced to serve as soldiers. Although a peace was brokered in 2006, communities throughout this post-conflict nation remain in a fragile state as they struggle to build a lasting prosperity.
