During the war, Akello Vicky was abducted and held captive, during which time she saw many close companions die and was forced into marriage with one of the rebel commanders. After having his child, Vicky escaped and was reunited with her family. Although she was free, life was still difficult. Even after remarrying, Vicky rarely had enough money to meet her basic needs and to provide for her child. Vicky sees her work at KKU as the door to a new life. She can now provide for herself and her family and no longer has to worry about going hungry or becoming homeless.

“My dream is to save enough money to be able to support my family without concern; to provide my child with food, medical care and clothing and also to save for the future.”

“Loving someone means caring for them wholeheartedly.”

“I thank the staff of KKU for their support because before joining the programme, I led a very difficult life but now that I am engaged in something productive. I know my standard of living is going to improve. I now have hope for the future.”

    Hello, Akello Vicky,

    Thank you so much for making the beautiful hat for my daughter. This hat is very special to us since you have made it and it helps someone in Uganda. My husband / daughter’s father was born and raised in Uganda so it is very near and dear to our hearts. My extended family still remains in Uganda so we love to help when we can. Keep up the great work. Accuume, Jennie
