We'd like to introduce you to Christine. She owns a small business near Tusubira Village and we knew soon after meeting her that she was a natural leader. In a place where women can often feel inferior and have little power in their communities, Christine stands out. She is focused on the projects she undertakes and dedicated in not only completing her own tasks but encouraging others to do the same. She is respectful of other community members and has a way of bringing people together to work as a team in order to accomplish more than if they worked individually. We feel fortunate to have Christine working with us to build Tusubira Village as she is an amazing role model for the women in rural Uganda.
