Our partner organisation Advance Afrika is a non-governmental organisation (NGO) founded in 2012 in Gulu, which deals with human rights issues, conflict management and violence prevention. The NGO is particularly active in the reintegration of prisoners returning from prison to their communities. Its aim is to give courage and hope again to people who have experienced war and displacement and who believe that imprisonment has taken away their future. The sentences are often linked to escalated land conflicts. Through mediation and conflict counselling, Advance Afrika, working with social workers from the Ugandan prison authorities, prepares prisoners for a peaceful return to society and mediates between families on the ground. For peaceful and constructive conflict management, Advance Afrika also strengthens structures within villages and works with volunteer village members. The aim is to de-escalate conflicts and strengthen reconciliation, justice and the ability to deal with conflicts in a constructive way.
