Meet Constance Alwoch
Consy Draped in Beads cropConsy daughter crop-2Ochira Making Beads crop
"I'd like to see orphans and children of single parents receive government assistance to attend school. This will encourage youth to be constructive
in the world."
This was Constance's wish. Her life was too difficult, her problems too overwhelming to dream big for herself.

 
Talking with Constance 2 years ago was deeply moving. There was a cloud of sadness permeating her words and emotions. Adbucted and raped as a teen, she lived in a 10'x12' concrete shelter with her four children ages 5-15.

Today, Constance is taking control of her life. After quiting stone quarry work, she is embracing bead making and acquiring life management skills.
 
Determined to be a great example to her children, she strives daily to pass on the values of loving and caring for one another, to maintain good health and a positive outlook on life.

With tears in her eyes, Constance conveys
heartfelt gratitude for your support.
