Some parents died as a result of the war though others because of HIV/AIDS epedemics in the region, leaving these children helpless and homeless. The need for community was evident and Fr Richard Akkena of Lacor Parish helped these youth from his parish find community through mutual support, fellowship, and cultural music, dance, and drama activities.\\ \\ **Proposal Statement of the Problem**\\ ​ Because of the war and becasue many children are orphans, many youth were left needed psychological support after trauma had been experienced during the war. One method of addressing this trauma is through cultural dance and music activities which support teamwork, group fellowship, and also help with the healing process. Furthermore,​ these group activities help Acholi youth recover lost cultural practices and traditions that were unable to be learned or passed down during times of war.\\ \\ **The Proposal Mission**\\ ​ Former abductees and orphan children will forget about their problems and trauma and begin to heal together while learning and teaching the Acholi dance and music traditions.

This will encourage other youth who have similar backgrounds but are afraid of stigmatization to come forward and join the group so that they can begin the healing process and reconciliation after being in the bush.
