My school for sex abuse survivors

Alice Achan gave an education to girls who'd been kidnapped by the LRA in Uganda

Alice Achan started a school for survivors of sexual abuse in Uganda. She began by helping young girls who'd been kidnapped and raped by the Lord's Resistance Army during the 1980s and 90s. When they became pregnant the LRA released them, but their families often refused to take them back and they couldn't get places at schools. Alice Achan set up schools with childcare facilities to help those girls re-start their lives.
