“The rebel soldiers took me from my village when I was 12 years old. I was given as a wife to Joseph Kony, [leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army]. I was soon pregnant with a boy. The baby… it disturbed me. And I figured, it didn’t stand a chance out there in the middle of the fighting. I also worried: what if he inherited his father’s mind? So one day, I walked into a millet field. The baby was asleep, and I laid him on the ground. And I walked away. I spent several hours thinking about it. And I finally returned. The boy was still asleep. I picked him up and took him back. We spent 7 more years out there, until we finally managed to escape. Back home, we are unwelcome. No one will marry me after what I’ve been through. My son is teased. I hear the neighbors talking as I walk by. They say 'Look at her eyes. She’s crazy from all the time she spent out there in the wild.' My son is a wonderful boy. He loves me; I love him. He’s the only person who helps me. Sometimes I look at him, and I remember that time when I almost left him in the millet field. And I think to myself: 'I would have made a mistake.' " - Paska Akwero (shown here with her son.) •••••••••••••••••••••• The Ugandan government and the US army recently announced they are calling off the hunt for LRA leader Joseph Kony. Today, many child soldiers and former LRA wives -- and their children-- have returned, and are still figuring out how to live their lives back in society. I’ll be sharing some of their stories in the next few days. Photo: #edward_echwalu #acrosswomenslives #uganda #LRA #girls

Just a little walk in the rain with my @ssekodesigns sandals. I love the design of these sandals because they're helping girls in Uganda pursue college dreams AND help me buy less because the clip on designs are interchangeable. One summer sandal, infinite possibilities? Yes please. ... #sseko #ssekostyle #ssekodesigns #slowfashion #ethicalfashion #votewithyourdollar #uganda #fairtrade #fairtradefashion

“When I was 11 years old, a group of rebel soldiers came into my village. They said they were lost, and asked if I could show them the way out. My father told them no. They insisted. They said ‘just walk us over to that tree and show us how to get out of here.’ When I got to the tree, they told me to keep on walking. This is when I became a soldier. I spent the next 11 years fighting in the bush. I do have regrets. One time, I was very hungry, and we looted a village. There were civilians guarding the food, and we killed some of them. I do wish it hadn’t happened. By the time I was 13, I felt so alone out there. And I was exhausted from carrying heavy weapons. I needed help. I needed companionship. I asked for a wife. She had been promised to a higher ranking lieutenant, a much older man, but was given to me instead. I know she didn’t want to be there. You know what? None of us did. Many people think I am a bad man. That I did bad things out there. I just tell them 'sure. Maybe you are right. I am a dangerous man. So just leave me alone.'" -Kenneth B. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••For over 20 years, the Christian militia known as the Lord’s Resistance Army fought to take over Northern Uganda. The LRA systematically abducted children and took them to the bush: an estimated 30 thousand were taken. The boys were turned into soldiers; the girls were trafficked and given as wives to fighters. The Ugandan government recently announced it is giving up it's hunt for LRA leader Joseph Kony.

Five Fun Facts about Lake Victoria in East Africa 1 - Lake Victoria borders three different countries: Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania. 2 - It’s a HUGE lake, with a surface area of 68,800 square kilometers (26,600 miles). 3 - In fact, it’s the largest lake in Africa, the largest tropical lake in the world, the second largest freshwater lake in the world! 4 - The lake is named after Queen Victoria. 5 - Only 20% of the water in the lake comes from streams and rivers. The rest (80%) comes from rain! That’s a LOT of rain. When you visit, you may want to take a boat ride to some of the islands. There are over 3000 islands in Lake Victoria. People especially enjoy visiting the Ssese Islands in Uganda.
