IHEYO board member Asaba Lawrence attended the regional youth camp organised by Conflict resolution by the youth (CRY ) once again organized a regional youth camp in East Africa. This regional camp was held in Katakwi district, Usuk village, North-Eastern Uganda, East Africa. This is one of the areas that has been disastrously affected by the 19-year-old insurgency in Northern Uganda.
The camp, run between 18-25 September 2005 and attracted participants from Uganda and Kenya The main theme of the camp was “Youth as a resource“. Experiences were shared and this tradition of sharing is also part of the forth coming similar camps in Rwanda and Kenya.
One of the main events were the cerebrations of the UN day for peace on the 21 of September. Community help initiatives were carried out and we visited the internally displaced people’s camps (IDPC’s) where our presence had a positive remarkable impact. IHEYO donated internet airtime to the administration board of CRY of 6 hours per week for three months as a way of opening communication doors and the world of IT.
