sinopsis

All Are My Children presents the voices of five ordinary, community-based Ugandan women who are not self-defined peacebuilders but whose various life activities contribute to building a culture of peace. The women range from a social worker in inner-city Kampala who helps orphans to a woman in southwestern Uganda who is trying to preserve her culture to a Karimojong woman who became a political leader in a heavily patriarchal culture. As the women describe their efforts to get an education, raise children, deal with oppressive marriage traditions, and survive wars, they offer fresh ways of looking at peacebuilding. The stories reflect a lived peacebuilding that emerges from the experiences and realities of the women’s lives, often in response to their struggle for survival—both individually and for their families and communities. All Are My Children provides insights into grassroots peacebuilding in any setting, and also serves to enlarge the definition of peacebuilding. It will be a foundational text for those seeking to understand how peacebuilding operates at the most basic level.
