From the inception of The Voice Project's Amplify Peace initiative in 2009—FM radio broadcasting of songs and messages out to LRA abductees in central Africa—defections and safe home-returns from the Lord's Resistance Army have dramatically increased to unprecedented levels, with up to 89% of defectors in some years attributing their decisions to come out of the bush to the "Come Home" programs.
