Arach Stella

With an abusive father and step mother, Stella and her siblings were taken in by a neighbor who treated them well and sent them to school. Unfortunately, Stella was abducted by rebels several times and watched as many of her family members were killed. Throughout the KKU program, Stella has been given hope and has acquired the skills and knowledge about crocheting, family planning, business identification and management.

“I dream to educate my children, acquire land for my children, and start income generating activity as an alternate source of income.”

“I enjoy enjoy parenting children and keeping them safe. I also like crocheting.”

“Love means having compassion for other people with sincere heart and not because of what one has.”

“I pray for blessings upon KKi. God who made them touch my life in a special way.”
