For three days we took this dirt road out to the Nakivale Refugee Settlement. The bumpy 45 minute ride provided time to take in the scenes of rural Africa. It also gave time to those of us traveling with @american_refugee_committee to get to know one-another and become friends. I just got home to the U.S. last night and I am missing those new friends pretty hard right now! #everydayafrica#africa#uganda#nakivalerefugeesettlement
When asked about her job, Geretulde "loves No.41 so much"... She is proud because she has learned many new things, about sewing and about life. She says that she can’t really understand how the work she is doing to support herself also supports 1,200 students and teachers in her community; she says it strengthens her so much and she works happily knowing she helps so many. She wishes her work to be perfect so she can sell even more and feed even more.
