“We need to educate our children about the past”

Posted in News

Children gather to listen in on a group meeting in Parachelle, Lamwo.

 

One mother who spent time in LRA captivity told us, “We want to forget the past, but we also need to teach our children about what happened before they were born. Community theater is one way they can learn about how people suffered, but also how we are coming back together.”

GRG strives to give our groups the tools they identify as being most effective in bringing change.  Community theater is one of GRG’s most requested activities because it gives the groups an opportunity to reach a wider audience with their messages of forgiveness and reconciliation.  The groups are planning for performances in February and March before the children go back to school.  Click here to help them make these performances happen!
