Life has taught me that I cannot change anything that happened in my life but I can choose to find joy in circumstances that others consider ordinary. I delight in being a mother, a sister, a wife, workmate and a friend.
I live in Nabukosi village, Jinja. This place has been my home since I was a child. It is a peaceful and loving community that has nurtured me. I am happily married and a mother to five girls and one boy. Besides working with Akola, I am a farmer and a leader within my community.
My journey with Akola started in 2011 and it has been a lifetime blessing for me and my family! As a mother I take pride in knowing that I am able to take my children to the hospital when they are sick, provide food for them when they are hungry, and keep them in school. I find unexplainable joy in each of my children. They all bring a special kind of joy to me.
Basing on my experience, joy cannot be attached to anything that I have or do not have. Even in the most imperfect situations, I choose to remain joyful because when I look deep inside me, there is always that one string of joy that I can cling to.
