reconciliation program, GRG projects bring together former combatants
of the rebel Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) and local community members
living in displacement camps in project groups of approximately 40
persons each. Together, the two groups build relationships and work
hand-in-hand on projects that they design themselves, such as communal
farming, brick-making, and counseling. By supporting these projects,
GRG encourages the long-term social and economic rehabilitation of the
war-weary people of northern Uganda. Registered as a 501c3 non-profit
organization in 2007, GRG currently works in 8 communities with over
400 project participants with a small staff and budget. Since we
started,
GRG has helped start over 300 new businesses for participants and send
over 700 of their children to school through school fees.
