Bead Maker
7 children

My name is Molly, I am 40 years old and I am a single mother of 7 children. I come from Lira district in the northern part of Uganda and am now living near Jinja. I came to Jinja in 1996 to look for a job after my husband left me. I knew I had to do whatever it would take to feed my children. I have been making necklaces for over 4 years now and ever since I began, I have managed to feed my children and buy clothing for them. I don’t have enough money yet to pay for all my children to go to school, but I know with the new business partnership with All Across Africa, I will be able to give the little ones a better education and afford a better house than the one am living in today. I am so thankful for all of the people in America who buy my necklaces, and for All Across Africa!
