After the war tore her family apart, Joska was required to find work as a peasant farmer. Unable to make ends meet, she approached KK Uganda for employment. Since joining KK Uganda she has peace of mind about being able to afford school fees for her children and is able to provide food and other needs for her family.

“I dream to be a powerful and successful business woman given all the business training I am receiving as a result of being at KK Uganda.”

“My favorite part of Northern Uganda is my village called Gulu district. I love it because it has very fertile soils and produces lots of wonderful foods. My heart is at peace here.”

“My interest is in God and my family. My hobbies are praising and worshiping God, gardening and cooking.”
