the subject of much debate, activism and academic research. It is commonly argued that

violence between intimate partners remains largely hidden and that children in families

where povcrt~ is the order of the day endure much physical, emotional and sexual abuse.

This qualitative study focuses on the experiences on the effects of domestic violence on

the behavior and welfare of the children in Kasese, Uganda. Although the children had

been fearful of reporting their abuse and had spent years suffering silently, all had finally

displayed much urgency in reporting the actions of their abusers. In reflecting on their

circumstances, the children refer to the primary factors influencing their parents to

become abusers: unemployment, financial hardships and poverty, alcohol and drugs, and

factors such as immature attitudes, cultural beliefs and jealousy.. Children born in

disorganized families had suffered more abuse and were controlled than their children from organized counterparts. The study makes many policy recommendations but emphasizes the importance of doing substantive work to probe childrens’ experiences of abuse in intimate unions in Kasese district western Uganda.
