In the last 30 years, Otuke’s location has made it particularly vulnerable to violent conflicts originating in the neighboring sub-regions of Karamoja and Acholi, which have severely impacted household food security. In 2006, with the improvement in the security situation, the first households started returning home. Most households returned home by the end of 2008. This evaluation concerns the LEARN-1 project implemented by ACF in Otuke from February 2009 - January 2010. The project was funded by the Royal Norwegian Embassy, which issued a call for proposals in September 2008 for cash transfer projects in support of the IDP return and recovery process in Northern Uganda in conjunction with the Ugandan government’s three-year Peace, Recovery, and Development Plan (PRDP) for Northern Uganda, which was launched in late 2007. The evaluation was conducted in July 2010, roughly six months after the final cash disbursement and the end of the project.
