Agwata, Uganda Artist Group

The Agwata group started out with 80 members. They are always eager to learn new skills and take on new projects. Communication is sparse, as there is no electricity and only limited cell phone reception. The lack of communication makes life difficult.

During the war most people in this group lived in IDP camps. Many children knew of no other life and were eventually forced into smaller camps. Food became very scarce during this time. The government forced them into these camps.

Eventually, with assistance, people were able to start income generating activities, like making bags. They also expanded into beekeeping and began to grow a few cash crops. They have helped build and support a primary school to educate their children. The school also offers meals to the children and teachers. This way they are eating more than the one meal a day.

She really likes being part of the Agwata group. Aciro is starting to feel empowered to change things for her children. She enjoys the work and how it leads to a better life.
