Pauline, Head Girl at Pader Academy

This is Pauline. She is 19, in Grade 10 at the Pader Girls Academy, which is funded by The Uganda Fund. At age 11, Pauline was abducted by the LRA and spent 7 years in captivity in the bush where she suffered horrific violence. Pauline is one of scores of former sex slaves who now learn and live in the safety of the Pader Girls Academy, receiving a high school education. The vast majority of girls in these situations have children as a result of rape, which makes them ineligible for Ugandan public schools. The Pader Girls Academy is the only school in northern Uganda to educate girls who are pregnant or have children. It truly serves the most vulnerable of the vulnerable. Pauline was recently elected Head Girl of the Academy. She is a most impressive young woman and a testament to the strength of the human spirit! Pauline is being interviewed in this video by Ambassador Allan Rock, Chair of the Uganda Fund.
