Innocent: A Spirit of Resilience

Today is Red Hand Day - an international day set aside each year to raise awareness and support to fully end the terrible use of child soldiers in armed conflicts worldwide. As a vocal leader based in Germany, Innocent describes his experience as a child soldier in northern Uganda: “I was able to escape and was included in a program with World Vision. Now I have completed graduate studies in economics in Germany and work for World Vision. I also wish these opportunities for all children who are still being abused as soldiers today.” Together with Innocent and other partner organizations, World Vision Deutschland is committed to child rights today and every other day of the year. World Vision Germany works across the world to assist former child soldiers and help them realize a better path through apprenticeships.

Innocent: A Spirit of Resilience

Laliya Primary School has new books! Thanks to Innocent’s fundraising effort, the library of his childhood school has been successfully replenished and the students no longer need to share books at 5-6 students per book. Special thanks to all who contributed! This project will have both an immediate and a lasting positive impact in the lives of so many children in Northern Uganda. 💜
