Being the first-born in her family, most of the family’s responsibilities fell on Janet after her parents passed away. In desperation to finish school, Janet attempted to raise money to pay for her own school fees by doing various casual jobs around town but was unsuccessful and had to drop out. Eventually, she joined KNOWN SUPPLY where she says, “I have found love in KNOWN SUPPLY. My heart used to ache because I missed out on parental love, but now I am in a family. Even with my first two-months of earnings, I could fend for myself and my three children. I have hope of improving my life and that of my children.”

“My future plan is to register for a tailoring course and become a professional tailor.”

“My enjoyable activity is Acholic traditional dances like “bwola” (royal dance) and larakaraka- dance for the youth and singing in the church.”

“Crocheting has made me increase my skills and now I can boast of being multitalented in crocheting! My favorite hat is ‘the Betty’.”

“Love means being exemplary to other people and doing good.”

I have now two of your beautifully hand-made scarfs, I bought one last year and I just received a Brine. I was very happy when I saw that both of my scarfs were made by you. I hope you know that what you do brings joy and happiness into peoples lifes and I think not so many people has the ability to do that, to take a piece of fabric and turn it into something beautiful that makes one feel happier about each day.
