Teddy Atim is the FIC Team Leader for northern Uganda, where she currently heads a multi-year research project on community-based and community-informed reparation. She is herself a member of one of the conflict affected communities. Beginning her humanitarian work with Concerned Parents Association in 2001 she worked on a number of research and documentation processes regarding abduction and return of captives. Teddy was then recruited by Save the Children in Uganda as a child protection officer, helping to design and implement the first studies of child prostitution and street children in northern Uganda, a phenomena greatly increased as a result of the war. She was asked to play a role in facilitating services for women and children remaining with the LRA as part of the Juba Peace Talks.
In 2007-2008, Teddy became one of the first young women from northern Uganda to receive a Ford Foundation Fellowship, which she used to complete her Masters in Humanitarian Assistance at Tufts University, graduating in spring 2008. Teddy is committed to developing herself to her fullest capacity and to serve as a role model for other young women in northern Uganda.
