Beyond Captivity; a Tale of Hope
The stretch of failure seemed to follow Hawa when she lost her mother, as she had no protection and support. However, despite public fear and criticism from the community, Hawa trusted God for a miracle. One day, she was identified by a Social Worker and registered at the children’s centre in Kamwokya. Gradually, through psychosocial, she made an amazing comeback, with empowermentthrough education. She joined primary school, where she acquired literacy and numeracy skills. She progressed slowly and later joined a skills training centre in Kampala. In February, 2019, Hawa graduated with a Certificate in Hotel and Institutional Catering.
Just before graduation, she was offered employment in one of the famous restaurants in Kampala. Today, Hawa is economically empowered and is positively contributing to her community.
