Uganda: The Challenge of Forgiveness

In dealing with the aftermath of war crimes by the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), many people of Uganda are choosing a path of reconciliation as they welcome back child soldiers and LRA officers into their villages. “Uganda: The Challenge of Forgiveness” chronicles religious leaders, elders, and parents who are exercising remarkable leadership and courage in choosing to forgive as they seek to rebuild their communities.

Fetzer advisor Dan Philpott traveled to Uganda to capture another side of this complex story: how communities are working to heal in the aftermath of war crimes and child abductions. A Fetzer Institute video produced by Jason Cohen Productions.
