The Global Livingston Institute (GLI) works to cultivate a more global understanding of poverty in order to foster healthier communities, basing its work in Uganda. Building on the research of previous Capstone teams, this paper develops a business plan for a community farmer program to foster reintegration of former child soldiers in the Lira region of northern Uganda. This plan is based on previous research including interviews conducted with former child soldiers in the area in January 2016, extensive literature review, and exploratory discussions with NGOS and private sector social impact organizations working in the region. The paper also includes preparation for fieldwork, and piloting the business plan with feedback from representatives from NGOs, government, business, and the community through focus groups conducted in summer 2017.
