Every night, up to 40,000 children living in rural northern Uganda walk into urban centres to sleep in relative safety and to escape the rebel army. To stay home would mean risking abduction and life as a child soldier, sex slave or even death.
On October 22nd, GuluWalk Day, over 40 cities around the world will walk in solidarity for these ‘night commuters’, the true victims of this all but forgotten 19-year civil war.
What started out as an attempt by two average people to better understand the ordeal of these courageous kids; has grown into an urgent, impassioned worldwide movement for peace.
Every morning, every night the children of northern Uganda walk for their lives. On Saturday, October 22nd we’re walking to tell their story.
