The Uganda Taekwondo Federation (UTF) officially launched a refugee inclusion club at the Rwamwanja refugee settlement.
The club was launched by UTF officials such as President Hakim Kato, guests and locals.
It began unofficially last year, when UTF secretary general Badru Ntulage visited the refugee camp and saw the need to bring taekwondo there.
The club started with 70 students, with the number since rising to around 300.
"Some were South Sudanese, Rwandese, Somalis," Ntulage said, as reported by Daily Monitor.
"They became close to us because we taught them taekwondo for free, and some had their lives changed.
"I started believing that those in settlements need these services even more, hence this project.
"The essence is inner healing.
"These people fled very hostiles environments and our programmes currently emphasise meditating, stretching and storytelling."
In Kampala, the urban refugee programme is also up and running.
UTF intends to visit the other parts of the country, including Adjumani, Moyo, and Kyagwari.
