Victoria Nyanjura was one of 139 girls abducted by the Lord’s Resistance Army, a violent rebel movement in Northern Uganda, when she was just 14 years old. During a captivity lasting almost 8 years, Victoria endured a terrifying existence of being beaten, tortured and enslaved by rebel commanders.

Since her escape from captivity in 2004, Victoria has continued her education, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Development Studies and becoming an influential activist and coordinator within the Women’s Advocacy Network (WAN).

Victoria will share her story and her vision for the future, followed by a Q&A session. She will be touching on her time in captivity and her life since, including her many accomplishments as part of the WAN and outside of it.

Don't miss this exciting opportunity to hear her story and discuss the issues with Victoria.
