Fall 2017 Grant Recipient: ChildVoice
for December 11, 2017
Driving Futures Forward
The Lukome Center includes non-traditional educational programs and a vocational training center with spiritual and emotional counseling for former child soldiers and other girls who have been marginalized by Uganda’s protracted conflict. Girls’ lives have been changed as they work through their trauma, learn job skills and begin to provide for their children. In fact, 93% of the girls ChildVoice has served in the last five years are back in their communities, raising their families and working in meaningful jobs, not dependent on aid or outside help. At the Lukome Center, you can hear laughter and voices filled with excitement, where once there was only despair and silence.
With the support of a generous grant from Legacy Collective, ChildVoice’s auto mechanics and driving school programs—the newest vocational program offered at the Lukome Center—was recently launched in the fall of 2017 and is well underway!
