Project Description:

This project partners with refugee-led organizations in the Nakivale Refugee Settlement in Uganda to document the organizational life of refugees.

Initiating in 2022, this project partners with refugee-led organizations in Nakivale Settlement in Uganda to document the organizational life of refugees.
