Today we started the day with some eggs on toast and pineapple. We then went and visited William, James and his team, they spoke with us about their awesome organisation HEYFU. HEYFU stands for: Heath Empowered Youth Focus Uganda. They focus on empowerment within their community as well as health and sexual education. They have a clinic where they give out free contraceptives and advice. They showed us the sanitary pads and backpacks that they had made to sell and support the community.
After meeting the wonderful HEYFU team we went and visited a couple of the mamas. First we visited Jane who built her business near her home so she can look after her grandchildren while she works. She sells water to the community from her water tank. She was very friendly and happy to show us around. We then visited mama Rehema who has a chip stand up the road from her home. She was very welcoming and excited to see us and show us her stand. Lastly we visited Lilly. Lilly has a shop in a market where she makes and sells bags as well as personalized embroidery. We were all very impressed with her work.
