Poetry therapy – Ajok on joy

Joy is something so impressed in the life of the people.
If you have joy in your life you will be free with your fellow youths.
I wish to be joyful with my fellow youths – boys and girls in a joyful Country.

Ajok Caroline, a Primary School Pupil, made this drawing and wrote this poem.

At the height of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) insurgency in Northern Uganda, CPAR Uganda (at the time the country office of Canadian Physicians for Aid and Relief) implemented a Peace Building Project in Gulu. As part of the project, primary school pupils were encouraged to express themselves through drawings and writing.
