Amono Lucy

During the war in northern Uganda, Lucy would sleep in hideouts in the bush to avoid getting abducted by the rebel army.  Food was scarce and life was hard.  At one point during a hideout with the rest of the family, she gave birth to her third child.  After the war, she did not have any proper source of income until she joined the KKU family.  She is now paying for five of her children to go to school and is sure of every meal.

“I plan to save as much money as possible which will enable me buy a plot of land.”

“The most enjoyable activity is singing gospel songs and participating in church activities.”

“Thank you to the founders of KKU for the crocheting program because it has enabled women to have a source of livelihood and are able to contribute to the development of the region.”
