Refugees and Orphans Thrive in WCF school—Tororo, Uganda
Displaced children and orphans, who previously had little hope, are thriving at The World Children’s Fund Mama Kevina secondary school in Uganda. The students range in age from eleven to twenty-four and are mostly from northern Uganda, where they have been affected by ongoing wars, floods and HIV/AIDS. Many of their parents were killed by rebels or died from AIDS, creating a large orphan population. Boys attending the school were forced to be child soldiers and many other children were separated from their families as they moved from village to village seeking refuge.
