Resource Type: 

In 2011, Restless Development, in partnership with IDS and the Pastoralist Communication Initiative, supported a group of young Karimojong men and women to conduct action research, exploring the barriers hindering young people from securing sustainable livelihoods in one of the poorest post conflict regions in Africa.  This resulted in the illustrated book “Strength, Creativity and Livelihoods of Karimojong Youth”. The groundbreaking findings have drawn the attention of local and national government, as well as international development agencies, which are now revisiting their efforts in Karamoja.
