“Faces of Hope, Fruits and Flowers of the AVSI OVC project”, wants to celebrate the growth brought by five years of project. Thanks to the many private and public supporters of AVSI, along with the contribution of the Government of the United States, through USAID and the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), AVSI and her 114 partner organizations have touched the lives of more than 14,000 children and their families in East Africa.
For every child, recovering his normal daily life first of all means going back to school, to his family and to his community. Living his every day life means above all having the chance to play. The importance of play is also recognised by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, as an activity of prevention of every kind of exploitation.
The games described in this manual will allow children to strengthen their life-skills at the same time as they will help adults get to know children better and relate with them. The chapters and the included games follow one another and allow for a progressive deepening of relationships and comprehension.

Stories of Moving on from Displacement in Northern Uganda.
After more than a decade of confinement to crowded camps, in 2006 the Ugandan Government declared the majority of the IDPs free to move out from the camps. The war in Northern Uganda has dragged on for more than two decades though, during which more than 1.1 million people were displaced in the Acholi Sub-Region. The combination of t he large displacement figures, a strong but inefficient local government, fluctuation of the security situation, and difficulties in coordination among humanitarian actors has contributed to the complexity of the return process.
This document examines the transitional period of early 2008 in the North through three stories of people who have experienced displacement and are now moving on in their own ways, and for their own reasons. Each individual’s story is different, but all share the hope for a better future, and for a return of Acholiland to what it is.
