Happy Homes, Peaceful Communities

The fifth annual Peace Exposition held in Lira district, Northern Uganda occurred at a particular time for women’s efforts to address sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) following conflict. With a long legacy of domestic violence and harmful social practices left unaddressed following up to two decades of war and displacement, local leaders focused on Aromo, Lira’s most affected sub-county. The peace exposition hosted in Aromo, presented an invaluable opportunity to gather clan leaders, women, men, boys and girls to dialogue with policy makers and decision makers for a community-driven solution to ending SGBV.

The report lays out in more detail the key highlights and outcomes of the 5th Annual Peace Exposition and Isis-WICCE’s efforts to contributing to endings SGBV in post-conflict Lira district.
