My name is Gladys Oroma. I am a journalist based in northern Uganda. I have worked as a reporter and writer for a number of local, national and international media organizations. For the local media organizations I've worked mostly for radio stations. For all these different media organizations, I write on a number of issues: conflict and post-conflict and these issues range from human rights violations and abuses, the environment, education and health. For international, I have worked as a freelance reporter, producing radio feature stories where we looked at post-conflict issues. For the Institute on War and Peace Reporting, we produced Facing Justice. We looked at different issues facing the people of northern Uganda post conflict.
Currently, I work as a script writer and editor for different projects in northern Uganda Media Club, an organization that was started by practicing and non-practicing journalists in the region. We offer trainings to the different local leaders in the region to help them understand how the media works and operates. And we have a number of donor funded projects that we do on post-conflict and especially the issues derailing peace and how best to promote peace in the region. That is what I do.
