These in most cases have resulted into supportive care from teachers, parents, students and community persons and as a result more programs are being designed to enable more girl children continue to go and remain in their schools. Through comprehensive and integrated programming using holistic rights based approach to development, HPH believes more will be achieved in the long run bringing out sustainable socioeconomic development in the post conflict recovery and development of Northern Uganda and beyond.
