The change we started to see here was when our children from here volunteered take up bows and arrows to fight the rebels...When those sons of ours came out, we saw they were going to help us. Their presence scared away the LRA from their frequent attacks on this community.U11

During the time we were running from the LRA at home the government did not come in to support us. It only happened when our sons grew annoyed and felt they could not just see their people get finished completely by the LRA. So they formed armed groups to defend the communities from attacks. Then, the government came and supported them with better arms. That was the time we felt some rest until we were taken into camps. U11

When we came back home, the rebels were still here and disturbing people, although they were not many as before. We continued to dodge them. But you know for us here we have our bows and arrows...that we use for hunting and protecting ourselves. So the men here also saw that since the rebels were every time attacking the communities, they decided to organize themselves to also lay ambush for the rebels who come in small numbers, like in groups of three. The men used bows and arrows to shoot at the rebels and you know with arrows once you are shot it will kill you.
