  • Inclusion Of Women With Disabilities In Partner Organisations’ Activities
Ms. Abalo Jennifer displays her woven products

I am Ms. Abalo Jeniffer, a blind woman aged 46 of Can pe Kun Women with Disabilities group in St Joe village, For God parish, Layibi division in Gulu city. I am a beekeeper, a basket knitter and a division counsellor representing Persons with Disabilities in Layibi division. I was trained in bee keeping in 2013 and in 2020 NUWODU collaborated with the Umbrella of Hope; an organization in Gulu to train the 27 members of the group in basket knitting.

As a blind woman, Umbrella of Hope wondered how I could benefit from the training and proposed to train my son in the skill. But I insisted on learning the skill during their training and from my son until I learned the skill. My son and I can now knit baskets for sale besides selling honey.

Basket knitting is a good business whose money is handy as opposed to bee keeping whose money is seasonal.  As a widow, I can pay fees for my children in good schools in Kampala.

Our plan as a group is to construct a room to train more Girls and Women with Disabilities in the skill of basket knitting.
