Private sector initiative in peace-building & reconstruction in Uganda
30 November 2004

Kampala: To mark International Volunteer Day, UN agencies, international and local organizations several private companies are gathering to renovate the Angai Primary School on 5 February 2005 in Uganda.

After 18 years of brutal conflict in northern Uganda, this year’s IVD is aimed at promoting peace building and reconstructing infrastructures. The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme will reconstruct teachers’ dormitory and provide textbooks and other materials to several schools.
