Pilgrim was founded as an indigenous Christian response to the plight of more than 1.5 million refugees living in internally displaced persons (IDP) camps in the war torn regions of Northern Uganda. From its inception as a small organization providing simple relief and psycho-social support to the desperate refugees, Pilgrim has grown to be an international organization with regional and national interventions in Public Health, Education, and Agriculture.
