Uganda – The Domino Effect

Agonga, Uganda
6 April 2014
Domino effect

The next location for Dominika Kulczyk and the crew of TVN will be Uganda – more precisely: the Agonga village in the district of Gulu. For almost 20 years, this region was debilitated by one of the longest Ugandan military conflicts in several decades. The havoc which unfolded in the country affected mostly children. In response, an organization aimed at helping them, the Childcare Development Organization Uganda (CDOU), was established. Kulczyk Foundation decided to give them a helping hand.

Dominika will participate in the construction of a playground for former child soldiers. She is going to learn the shocking stories of their lives. A playground might not seem to be an urgent need for a community vulnerable to the negative effects of a long-term conflict. But Dominika Kulczyk, Hope Okeny, the founder of CDOU, and Pamela Angeyo, a teacher working in the local children’s day-care center, will explain the profound therapeutic influence which it can have on the children under the organization’s care in Uganda. We kindly invite you to watch the episode available in Polish at: http://player.pl/programy-online/efekt-domina-odcinki,1991/odcinek-6,uganda,S01E06,28512.html
