Adero Evalyn was born on 30th August 1991 in Lira Dokolo and she has been living in Acholi Quarter for 8 years. She went through a difficult childhood as she was born from a different father and her brothers and sisters never accepted her and mistreated her, and she had to escape from her home at a early age.
She is living with her husband and she has 3 kids, two of which are sponsored by 22 Stars. Besides making jewelry she sells vegetables at the market. Her life has been greatly benefited from the jewlery program, as she is now able to buy school materials for her children, provide them with food and pay the house rent.
Her husband doesn’t provide anything for her and steals the money she earns from the jewlery, and for this reason she would like to leave him and move to a new home with her children and provide them with a better future.
Evalyn’s inspirational quote: “I advise every woman to have a good job and fight for it to sustain your family and to not depend on any man. Woman should be strong because their children are their future.”
