At the beginning of the year, when we first arrived back in UG… Evelyn was
on a mission: she wanted to have a baby by the end of the year. Hear it from
her own mouth … and watch this video.
Well, we have good news. She is now pregnant! Her wish has come true. She
will give birth at the end of this year… if we are lucky, she may even
name it after one of us.
A little more about Evelyn: She is on of a few of our ladies that are not of
Acholi descent. She is from the West Nile. Two of her children currently
reside there with some of her family members, and she takes a couple trips
out there a year to visit them. Her dream is to one day bring them to Gulu,
so they can be reunited as a family. Until then, she is busy making beads
for 31 Bits (you can see some of her beautiful beads on the Reef Ugandal’s).
She will soon get her own bank account and receive financial training in
order to help her save money for the future and for her family.
