Hiding from Ugandan Rebels
Hiding from Ugandan Rebels

Listen
AIR DATE: September 27, 2010

Imagine a young boy. Every night, he doesn't sleep in his own bed. Instead, he walks miles to sleep on the muddy floors beneath a local hospital. Because if he doesn't, the local militia might abduct him and force him into their army. This is Uganda. These children are called "night commuters."

We talk to a Ugandan boy who has spent most of his young life hiding from the militia. He's sharing his story with Las Vegas students, thanks to a nonprofit group and high school teachers. Rebroadcast.
