Uganda's New Vision covers a recent community launch of the PlayMatters initiative which aims to strengthen the mental, physical, and emotional skills and well-being of refugee and host community children, to bolster their development and ability to cope with trauma. The local launch on November 20, held in the Adjumani refugee settlement, followed a national launch at Uganda's State House in October. 

PlayMatters is funded by the LEGO Foundation and implemented by a consortium led by the International Rescue Committee, in partnership with Plan International, War Child Holland, the Behavioural Insights Team, and Innovations for Poverty Action and will be operating in Uganda, Ethiopia, and Tanzania.
