The Government of Japan has handed over the Multi-purpose Hall in Amuru District. The new multi-purpose hall is comprised of the main hall with stage, storage room, restrooms, canteen and kitchen, and office space. The main hall has the capacity to accommodate 300 people.


Japan introduced "Northern Uganda Development Program" in 2009 for the purpose of ensuring seamless efforts during transition from humanitarian to recovery and development activities as well as establishing solid basis for lasting peace in the region. The Program is expected to provide community with sustainable and safe access to social service as well as to enhance better livelihood of former Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).
