Partners: Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice; The Women’s Advocacy Network;
With the Women’s Advocacy Network (WAN), JRP works to advocate for the promotion and respect of rights of children born of war and/or forced marriage by facilitating child reintegration and family reunions for children born of war across northern Uganda. In doing so, WAN members reunite children with their families and mediate such processes to ensure there is reconciliation and acceptance.
In partnership with the Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice in 2016, the WAN and JRP will support the reintegration process of 12 children with their paternal and maternal relatives.
Objective: Reintegration of children born of war such as children born in captivity with their families for family support and a sense of identity.
Expected outcome: Children born of war are properly reintegrated in community through a family centered approach and to enhance reconciliation among relatives.
