When Akweyo Irene was young her parents divorced and her mother left Irene and the other four children with their father, who wasn’t mentally stable. Although she was not directly affected by the war, her family struggled greatly to afford school and were often unable to meet their own basic needs. Working at KK Uganda has provided Irene with a steady source of income and she has been able to support her extended family. Irene hopes to sponsor her niece through school and to also provide her own child with a proper education.
DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE
