Since 2006, the 20 year conflict between the Government and the Lord’s Resistance army in Uganda has ended. However ceasefire is reality only on paper. The women of northern Uganda are fighting for gender equality and their right to fully participate in the peace negotiations and process. “We had the opportunity to meet women who – despite of the almost hopeless situation – are full of vitality and try with enormous energy to restart. The persistent danger of a recurring conflict can not stop them,” describe filmproducers Gregory Glaser and David Arno Schwaiger their experiences.

The documentary has been produced in the course of the project “Women’s Empowering for Peace” financed by the Austrian Development Agency in cooperation between CARE Osterreich and Sancho Pansa Film Productions. It reveals impressive stories of the life of women in northern Uganda.

CARE Osterreich has provided humanitarian aid to Uganda since 1969. In the beginning the projects were restricted to agriculture, cattle breeding and education in healthcare, but were expanded due to the bloody civil war: Women’s Empowerment is now a main focus.
