A playground for orphaned children of Ugandan soldiers

Agonga, Uganda
infrastructure

The playground is a new area at the Karin Resource Center operated by Childcare and Development Organisation Uganda, a centre for orphaned children of former soldiers. With the support of Kulczyk Foundation, the organisation created another element of a safe haven for children victimised in the conflict and their families.

The fun in the playground serves as an element of education and development, which thanks to the combination of therapy and games, helps rehabilitate the children and relieve their trauma. It teaches the children how to act with mutual respect and kindness and how to solve conflicts peacefully.

Stages:

Dominika Kulczyk personally monitored the construction of the playground in February 2014 and learned about the projects carried out at the Karin Resource Center. The Centre is already offering extracurricular activities developing creative skills – handicraft, dance, and theatre.

In the future, the Karin Resource Center wants to expand its operations over more of those in need with the help of Polish volunteers. This requires investments in its infrastructure, including equipment, necessary renovations, and installation of solar panels to ensure permanent access to electrical energy. The organisation will also continue to develop its programmes.

About the Partner:

The Childcare and Development Organisation Uganda is a local non-governmental organisation working to improve the living conditions of the children and parents victimised in the Ugandan conflict. Its proteges include people in a serious threat of being infected or already infected with HIV/AIDS, who – due to the long years of the internal conflict – lost their relatives and experienced the trauma of war. They also include the orphaned children of former soldiers who were forced to join partisan groups of the LRA. CDO(U) operates in the region of Gulu in north Uganda.
