One Ugandan Grandmother’s Success

Stidia Tumubwine, 54, lives in the village of Kazirakyende in southwest Uganda, along with her three grandchildren.

Two of the children, now ages eight and ten, came to live with her three years ago after Stidia’s daughter separated from their father. The third child, nine-year-old Martin, is a double orphan, the offspring of Stidia’s late son. His mother abandoned him at his grandmother’s home and later died.
