Ms. Shilla Adyero is a Human rights advocate born, raised, and educated in Gulu, Northern Uganda; a place characterized by a protracted two-decade conflict. Shilla hold a BS degree in Community Psychology from Makerere University in Uganda as well as a certificate in Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution from Western Washington University’s Fairhaven College and currently pursuing her Master’s Degree in Sustainable Development at the SIT Graduate Institution , Vermont- USA .
The two decades of violent conflict between the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) and the government of Uganda drastically affected the people of Northern Uganda. Children, women, adolescence were particularly vulnerable, their development have been significantly shaped by the influences of war. Shilla lived through traumatic experiences. Her home was surrounded by gun fire. She and her family were forced into refugee camps where they went without food and consumed unsafe water for years. Shilla and her community were traumatized by the gross human rights violations of the Lord’s resistance Army as many children were abducted on their way to schools, recruited as child soldiers or used as sex slaves by the rebel fighters. She counts herself lucky to have been able to pursue her studies despite the violence that surrounded her.
Shilla is committed to helping children, youth, and women in her community. She dedicates her life to advocating for their rights to own land, health, and access to education.
The conflict in northern Uganda sharpened Shilla’s appreciation for life. With this determination and dedication to advocate for the rights of children, women, and girls, she seeks to make a positive difference in Uganda and the world at large.
