Andrew Agaba will partner with Africa Leadership Institute on “Voices of Uganda,” a newspaper supplement, poster campaign, touring exhibition, and blog designed to prevent pre- and post-election violence in Uganda in the February 2011 general elections. The project will principally target youth (18-35 years old) in 10 major Ugandan cities and towns, especially those with a history of electoral violence.

Portraits of everyday Ugandans holding messages encouraging peace and nonviolence will be distributed as a newspaper supplement, poster campaign, touring exhibition, and website. These activities will be combined with discussions led by peace building experts and local and religious leaders to mitigate circumstances that may lead to violence.
