Uganda

Combating recruitment of child soldiers
and other worst forms of child labour


The Foundation's most recently completed principal project was requested by the International Labour Organisation (ILO), to assist with their International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC).
Based in Turin and Geneva, ILO/IPEC has developed SCREAM, an arts-based package which can be used to educate children in all societies about such subjects as their rights and international law on the employment of children.

Bill was assisted with aspects of this work by the newly formed Young Foundation Group - the youth wing of the Foundation.


A role-play session with 14-year-olds in Lira, Uganda in November 2008, ends with an impromptu exhibition describing their experiences and celebrating their work.


Bill made trips to Uganda in November 2008, and to Nepal in January 2009, to field test his new SCREAM module.
