“Through Our Eyes” in Northern Uganda

In September 2009, “Through Our Eyes” training was carried out in Gulu, northern Uganda. Workshop participants included ARC staff, individuals working with local partner agencies, and community members. The new team created two videos: a drama on the role of men in promoting family well-being, and a documentary about living positively with HIV/AIDS. The first community playback of these programs sparked lively discussion and enthusiastic response to project activities. Subsequent programs addressed sexual exploitation, the dangers of such practices as forced marriage and widow inheritance, and the importance of girls’ education.
