Bright Stars who were led by 3 Players (Derrick Kiggundu, Methodius Jjungu and Damien Nakalema) got engaged in coaching and participation in a soccer tour which was organised by Terra Renaissance.
They also acted as role models to the young ex- combats in terms of inspiring and motivating them
They helped in providing basic training, balls and training kits to the young kids who had lost hope due to being forced to join army at a tender age.
I was inspired by the suffering of people of Gulu when i got to learn about it.”
Terra Renaissance founder Shingo said
Sports especially football is so good at promoting relations and morals which can be a key tool in rehabilitating the former child soldiers
Terra Renaissance was established in Northern Uganda in 2006 when a number of service providing organizations!(both local and international) left the region citing cessation of hostilities between the LRA and the Government of Uganda to be the reason for ending service provision.
Terra Renaissance was erected to provide essential services focusing on young people’s education, health, wealth and entrepreneurship skills to address over dependency whilst encouraging self-reliance.
