Introduction The International Criminal Court (ICC) and the Trust Fund for Victims (TFV) were established in 2002 under the Rome Statute. The ICC is charged with prosecuting and trying those responsible for genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity, while the TFV provides support to victim survivors of these crimes, and their families, in situations within the jurisdiction of the ICC. To achieve this objective, the TFV has a dual mandate: a) To implement reparations ordered by the Court against a convicted person; b) To implement assistance to victims and their families in situations before the ICC by funding programmes for physical rehabilitation, material support, and psychological rehabilitation. For further information about the Trust Fund for Victims please visit: 2. Description of Potential Ongwen Reparations Programming In March 2004, the government of Uganda referred the northern Uganda situation to the International Criminal Court. On 4 February 2021, Trial Chamber IX delivered its judgment pursuant to Article 74 of the Rome Statute, convicting Dominic Ongwen of 61 crimes, consisting of crimes against humanity and war crimes committed in Northern Uganda between 1 July 2002 and 31 December 2005. Following Dominic Ongwen’s conviction, the Trial Chamber on 6 May 2021 sentenced him to 25 years of imprisonment. On 6 May 2021 the Chamber also issued an “Order for Submission of Reparations” in the Ongwen case. The Trust Fund will submit observations to the Trial Chamber by 6 December 2021 concerning among other things how the harm of these victims could best be repaired and the costs of such reparations. For this reason, the TFV would like to develop a roster of potential implementing organizations to partner with the Trust Fund, should the Trust Fund be called upon to implement reparations for the benefit of victims in the Ongwen case. The Trust Fund seeks relevant information from organizations concerning their programming and capacities in Uganda. Please note that the Trust Fund in particular is interested to receive information that allows it to assess the available skills and capacities present in northern Uganda that may be able to provide treatment, services, and reparatory responses to victims individually and group empowering measures. The information provided by your organization will enable the Trust Fund to create a roster of organizations and identified skill sets that may be able to respond to a potential reparations order. The Trust Fund has conducted an assistance programme in northern Uganda since 2008 and through those activities has provided rehabilitation assistance to more than 60,000 victims directly within the jurisdiction of the ICC. 2 The TFV is therefore pleased to call upon competent non-governmental organizations (NGOs), international organizations (IOs), and private businesses who are active in Uganda in any of the following areas: medical services, trauma based counselling, psycho-social services, livelihood activities, socio-economic programming, improved agricultural activities, symb
