Prof. Carmen Logie launches Ugandan storytelling project

Categories: ,


In Uganda’s Bidi Bidi refugee camp, which houses more than 225,000 internally displaced people and refugees, adolescents and youths will soon be able to share their experiences through digitally drawn images.

The project, led by the University of Toronto’s Carmen Logie, involves creating tablet apps that will allow the camp’s young people to describe their personal experiences with things like gender-based violence, as well as issues like body image and autonomy.
