Achan Scovia was born on 1st February 1991 in Kitgum Putika and she has been living in the Acholi quarter for 24 years, and fortunately she did not personally go through the LRA conflict. However she has been suffering a lot because one of her children a few years ago was poisoned and died.
Besides being in the jewelry program, she works in the stone quarry and thanks to 22STARS she was able to buy clothes and food for her children. Now she wants them to have a better future and to be able to buy a house.
Scovia’s inspirational quote: “Stay strong and always with your eyes open. You are the one taking care of your children and you never know what others can do. Be grateful for what you have and fight as much as you can to have more.”
