Many suffer serious sexual and physical abuse while kept in armed groups, living with a daily fear of violence and the prospect of fighting. Because of such experiences, these same girls are often abandoned by family members and shunned from community life. Through promoting girls’ involvement in community life, access to education, peer-to-peer support and many other ideas that we firmly believe can radically change the lives of former girl soldiers in the country. We want your help to change this. All donations to the appeal go directly towards our work with communities and local partners on how to better support these girls.

One of the European Commission's partners, the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), is helping uprooted families get their lives back on track by providing them with food assistance. Bernadette Sinanjiya fled to Uganda with her family when their neighbours were killed. When they returned to their village later on, they had nothing. Thanks to NRC, she started breeding chicke...
