Steven is 12 years old, he loves football. Steven is also a refugee from South Sudan who fled to Uganda with his parents where he has the chance to grow up free from fear and violence. In this video, Steven tells his story through his own words and photos.

Steven takes part in War Child Holland's I DEAL programme which, with the help of EU humanitarian funding, provides psychosocial support for children in Adjumani, Uganda.

In the I DEAL intervention children aged 6 – 12 learn to express their feelings, cope with trauma and adversity, and solve problems and conflicts without resorting to violence. Creative group activities, games and discussions help build children’s confidence and self-esteem - helping them to believe in a better future.
