Acholiland is located in Northern Uganda and the very South of Southern Sudan. The people in Acholiland have their own native language and very distinct culture to other ethnic groups in the area. This part of Uganda is unfortunately best known by the conflict caused by the LRA – the Lord’s Resistance Army led by Joseph Kony.
The conflict lasted well over 20 years and has caused an immense amount of suffering to the Acholi People. For further information click on the image below directing you to Wikipedia.
