Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2008
Empowering Hands
This description of Milly Auma's work was prepared when Milly Auma was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2008.
In the midst of the civil war that has devastated northern Uganda for more than two decades, Milly Auma is helping women who were once held captive by the Lord’s Resistance Army return to their communities and rebuild their lives. For ten years Milly lived in captivity and she now uses her personal experiences to inform her organization’s counseling services and economic programs.
