Youth activist in Adjumani appeals for support
With the continuous influx of South Sudanese refugees in West Nile, fellow South Sudanese youth who crossed to Uganda in Adjumani through the “I am peace” project are appealing for more support.
“I am peace” team would like to call upon everybody to embrace this project to support the traumatized South Sudanese refugees so that they can peacefully co-exist with the host communities,” Sambro told Juba Monitor.
“We need financial and material support,” Sambro said the Founder of the “I am peace” project. “We use our own money to keep the project run which is inadequate to enable us reach out to all the refugees in different camps within West Nile”.
He said inadequate fund has confined their activities just within Adjumani saying they hope to expand if they get any funding.
Sambro said although currently the project is being supported by the office of the Prime Minister Uganda, they still face many challenges to allow them create awareness.
“The project needs support such as community dialogue, radio talk shows, talent search programs for the youth, radio drama series, inter school essay writing and debate,” said Sambro a former radio journalist in Juba.
“I am peace” project has organized talent search in Adjumani that sow South Sudanese rapper Black Diamond emerging the winner but lack of support has hindered the ability of the group to conduct more of such activities in order to unite the youth.
