Falling asleep in a mud hut, listening to the joyful sounds of girls and their children singing and praying is an experience I will never forget. As a volunteer with ChildVoice, I had the opportunity to spend two weeks in Uganda, working with the girls and staff. It was a life changing experience, spent in the African bush with people who have experienced the worst of mankind's inhumanity. CVI is reforming former child soldiers, and providing them with the life skills and education necessary to reintegrate into their communities as productive citizens. Not only has the circle of violence stopped for these girls, but it has stopped for their children as well. Where there was once pain and hardship, there is now hope.

Graduates explained how they are using their business skills/trade (taught at CVI), to support themselves, their children and their extended families. Local program stakeholders helped me understand how CVI outreach has shifted public opinion; girls who were once hated outcasts are now vital members of the community.
