Ex-child soldiers changing their lives

Ex-child soldiers changing their lives

African report February 2018

In the northern part of Uganda, we give “ex-child soldiers” support for their independence. They were abducted and forced to fight. This time, we introduce a trainee who works as a tailor after she received Terrarenaissance’s dressmaking training.

 “There are few customers”, she said without confidence 1 year ago when she had just opened her shop. Now they are many customers!

 

She said, “I formerly relied on my uncle for living expenses but I understood he also does not have no money to spare… it was hard for me to live.

Now, I can take care of my family because of income from the dressmaking shop. If anyone in my family pick up malaria, I can take him or her to hospital for treatment.”

Half a year is left before support for independence have finished for 3 years.

They make steady progress towards independence. For example they can pay the rent on their shop.

They will independent in a bit. They have tragic past experiences but they continue challenging and they gradually change.

We believe we all have “the power of creating future” and continue trying!
