LUKOME SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL FINALIZATION BRIEF

On Friday 15th June, Wizarts Foundation and Lukome Senior Secondary School successfully pulled off the long anticipated Super Woman Awards Gala themed; “GBV: A pathway to HIV infection: All Girls Deserve a VIOLENCE FREE LIFE. What are you doing about it today?”. It was an event filled color, dancing, talent, and educative dramas. To say the kids were excited would take away from the enthusiastic energy of the day.

Schools present were, Gulu Army Secondary School, Paicho Secondary School, the hosts; Lukome Senior Secondary School, Awach Secondary School, Gulu Secondary School and new comers to the project; Secrade Heart Secondary School Gulu. With the help of the boys, the girls presented dramas depicting their harsh reality growing up in their different societies titled; domestic violence, child labor, the huddle and early marriage. Highlighting the abusers, the possible helpers and victims in society, the dramas sent clear messages on how these depressive actions in society affect the girls’ ability to perform and level up, how they can be avoided and what steps one should take should they find themselves in similar positions.

During his speech, the Head Teacher at Lukome Senior Secondary School, Mr Thomas Angola expressed his delightful experience working with the Super Woman Dreams teams especially because of the impact he has seen the project take on the girls involved. According to him, the girls are more confident, expressive and demanding of themselves academically and outside the school. Following our theme: “GBV: A pathway to HIV infection: All Girls Deserve a VIOLENCE FREE LIFE. What are you doing about it today?”, he called upon parents, guardians and the community not to become the abusers or the silent stander by.

Following our theme too, Guest of Honor, Ms. Miriam Atooro, stressed self-love and the lack of it as the center/beginning of all Gender Based Violence (GBV) in young girls and women’s lives. Very passionate about the African girl child, she encouraged the girls with her humble beginnings telling her education journey; attending schools in Gulu district just like they were currently doing. She also urged them to find a positive place to focus their energy, possibly something they love doing, and become good at it as it will be fulfilling and useful in the future. Her most profound communication in her speech however was her recognition of the young men attending the gala and urging them to continue working together with and protecting the women in their society as women cannot win the battle against the currents treatment they face alone.
