3 Hi, my name is Leira D. Maldonado, my home town is Manati Puerto Rico, and now, I am a Peace Corps Volunteer in Soroti, Uganda.. In 2003 the Lords Resistance Army, (LRA), invaded the Teso region of Uganda. Many people experienced brutal persecution and had to flee their homes. One of the aims of the LRA rebels was the abduction of children to use as soldiers. Once abducted, children were forced into the jungle where killings, rape, and sleep and food deprivation took place.

4  Some of the reasons are: Inadequate training on guidance and counseling Lack of knowledge on record keeping, rules and regulations. Not enough community Integration Inadequate planning time and structure  Some of the children that were abducted were rescued by the organization called RACHLLE. They were provided with counselling and scholarships to continue their education. Once in school is up to the teachers to provide guidance and counselling to these children. Frankly, the reality is that is challenge for teachers to provide adequate guidance, counselling sessions and activities in school.
