Adong Jackline lost her father as a child and mother struggled to provide for Jackline and her eight siblings. She lost many members of her family during the war and was held captive for a short time by the rebel army. Working for KKU has allowed her to send her children to school and to meet her family’s basic needs. Above all, Jackline is grateful for the opportunities that this program allows as she had tried working for little pay at other jobs and is now doing work she enjoys and making a fair salary for it.
DREAM FOR THE FUTURE
“My future dream is to save money so that I can do another business which will enable me to earn more money so that I can buy a plot of land for my family to build on.”
“I enjoy working in the garden and love that Northern Uganda has such fertile soils that make crop production easy. During my childhood I would work with the other children in the gardens.
MESSAGE TO KKi
“My message to KKU is that they should continue to assist the women of Uganda. We greatly appreciate all the founders and initiators of the KKU programme.”
