background

The 1990 to 2000 war was led by Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebels which severely affected Kisanga village where homes, families, animals and property were looted up by the rebels and its attack has shrouded in mystery ever since according to the UN, most of its members were Islamists who wanted to establish Sharia law in Uganda. In February 1998, 30 children students were abducted by ADF rebels from Mitandi College in Kasese and in May of the same year, civilian poor women were hacked to death. The most painful incidence happened on 8th June when rebels killed 80 students from the area by setting locked dormitories on fire.

Many children were abducted as child soldiers and sex slaves to the rebels forced to beat and kill innocent people that led to loss of lives and resulting into spread of HIV/AIDS which has up to date increased the homeless orphan crisis in the region. With the survivors suffering from psychological trauma as result of their war experience, and the community has continued to face poor sanitation and health facilities, hunger and poverty. Kisanga village community has ever since suffered the consequences of poor education due to schools being destroyed by the war and impoverished poverty as most families relay on less than 1 USD and one meal a day.
