ABOUT THE UNIVERSITY OF THE SACRED HEART (USH)

WELCOME!!Archbishop John Baptist Odama, the Champion for Peace

Welcome to this first issue of Newsletter from the University of the Sacred Heart (USH) Project. It is out hope that through regular updates we shall keep stakeholders, and all interested persons posted on the status and development of the University of the Sacred Heart Project.


THE USH PROJECT INITIATIVE
The USH Project has been initiated by His Grace Archbishop John Baptist Odama and the Archdiocese of Gulu, to address, both in the short and long term, the effects of the war and to re-align human dignity and values as central in all human activities and relationships, so as to ensure sustainable peace and holistic development. These effects of war include, but are not limited to the psychosocial needs (trauma and its manifestations such as alcohol dependence, mental illness, domestic violence, lack of appreciation of the value of human life, desperation and suicide), individualism, societal mistrust and challenges of collaboration, challenges of re-integration, poverty  and development.

The USH is being established particularly so as to contribute more effectively to addressing the needs for faster and more meaningful healing, reconciliation, moral integrity and, re-building and changing the lives of people in post-conflict situations in Uganda and neighboring countries e.g. South Sudan, Eastern Congo, etc. who have shared experiences of conflicts and war; and to ensure that quality higher education contributes to the healing and growth of society in all dimensions.

THE USH MISSION, VISION AND MOTTO
The USH MISSION is "to contribute to personal and social healing, growth and holistic development of Uganda and the world community through provision of quality education, training and research and community outreach"
