Welcome to UNIFAT Primary School

While the ravaging conflicts of the 1970’s through early 2000’s have ended in northern Uganda, these traumas remain a large presence in much of the population. In the mid-1980’s a primary school called UNIFAT was founded in Gulu, Uganda as a safe, supporting refuge for children orphaned due to conflict, AIDS, and poverty. I spent a week working with these teachers and students, engaging them in analyses of key documents supporting human rights and helping them bring these, together with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, into their classroom activities and curriculum. Their unbounded energy and enthusiasm were inspiring and contagious as they then designed age-appropriate outreach activities that are already being introduced.
