The war has greatly effected the course of Beatric’s life. While she was still in school, Beatrice was kidnapped and raped by a soldier while on her way to sleep at a local hospital, for fear of being abducted by the rebels. She became pregnant from the raping, later decided to live with the man who raped her and they now have three children. Times were tough during the height of the insurgency and she recalls being constantly hungry and worried if she would survive to the next day. Life has improved greatly for Beatrice, insuring safety and money for her household.

“I spend my free time reading the Bible, listening to gospel music, and teaching my children how to read and write.”

“I love to read the Bible, wash clothes and sing.”

“I want to thank KKU for helping put smiles on many faces, giving jobs to hundreds and improving living standards of the poor women and their households in northern Uganda.

Thank you Beatrice - I love my hat! I am very particular about the hats that I wear, and this is by far the most comfortable hat that I've ever owned. It also fits perfectly and the quality of the craftsmanship is amazing. I know the slogan is "buy a hat. change a life." but please know that the work you have done has made a change in my life as well. Thanks so much!
