Event Details

In Support of child-headed families in Northern Uganda and young people in contact or at risk of contact with the justice system in Australia

 

Uganda

The Civil War in Northern Uganda led by Joseph Kony ended in 2006 but it left behind devastating losses to the people of Northern Uganda which will take many years to recover from. As the able bodied people picked up their lives after the war and resettled back in their ancestral homes, thousands of orphaned children and the elderly are still left behind stranded in Internal Displaced Person Camps with nowhere to go. They have fallen victims to land grab that came with displacement/resettlement, and also the lack of resources and the ability to claim their land and homes leaving especially orphaned children highly vulnerable and at risk of exploitation. 

The foundation currently provides direct support to child-headed families and orphaned children who have fallen to the war as their parents were either abducted, killed by Joseph Kony`s rebels or died of diseases including HIV/AIDS. Our support ranges from helping a child stay in school through child sponsorship, providing psycho-social support to children exposed to traumatic events, provision of scholastic materials, providing access to medical services and family packages to ensure children do not go hungry.

In Australia

Diversion and Mentoring Programs 

This Life Foundation recently started working with young people in contact or at risk of contact with the justice system through volunteer mentors. The over-representation of young people of African background in the justice system in Australia is worrying and the Foundation is creating opportunity for people of goodwill to join hands to address this issue. The Foundation through volunteers;

  • Mentor and support children below the age of 18 years who are going through the justice system who have been placed on diversion programs.
  • Visit and mentor other young people of African background who have been through the justice system and are either in Prison or released into the community. 

Moral Support to Vulnerable Women.

Supports vulnerable Women from African background in who are victims of family violence, overwhelmed by pressure of life in a new country which has left them socially isolated, economically disempowered, disconnected and living with mental illnesses. We specifically focus on women who have been through the justice system or going through the justice system. Most of these women come back to society with zero support and are left highly isolated and vulnerable.

There are many opportunities to partnership with us, we invite you to come on board in any capacity  and you can start by buying a ticket to this dinner. Let it start with you and we can create a better world and future.
