Exhibit Title: Reconstructing War Weary Northern Uganda

Location: Uganda

Caption: Two women in Northern Uganda carry water from a newly drilled bore hole in their hamlet. They walk to their huts across a newly built gravel road. Access to clean water and new roads are two of three legs of U.S. AID and Winrock International's $500 million NUDEIL construction projects in Northern Uganda. The impoverished region, now peaceful, is recovering from a long insurgency by Joseph Kony's the Lords Resistance Army. Accessible clean water can transform family health and free mothers' time for other economically productive activities. The new roads can mean easier travel to markets, safer travel to school for children, and easier access by health care workers and security forces.
