Former girl soldier from Uganda now helps other child abductees

Grace Arach was “abducted by rebels, raped, coerced into marriage, forced to kill” and finally escaped when she was 23 years old from the Lord’s Resistance Army from northern Uganda, one of the worst offenders of using child soldiers.

Since then, she has joined Children/Youth Peace Builders (CAP) a local organization in Gulu, Uganda, where she uses her personal experiences to educate the community how to help reintegrate the former child abductees into their communities.  

Through Children / Youth Peace Builders (CAP), a local advocacy community organisation, Arach is teaching her community how to treat the former child abductees, help the reintergrate into society and learn their responsibility towards the community.

In addition to working at the center with the children, Arach also attends Gulu University, where she is working towards a degree in development studies.
