Victoria’s story is similar to that of many other women in Uganda. Her husband died in the mid 1990s, leaving her alone with a young daughter to care for. As she struggled to keep her home and provide food for herself and daughter, she met a German missionary. This missionary taught Victoria a new skill, weaving. Victoria flourished under the German missionary, and even traveled to Germany to further study the art of weaving. Since then, Victoria has developed this skill into a highly effective trade. She is strict on quality control, making sure every product is crafted with the highest standard. The Rafiki Exchange has partnered with Victoria, and now she has been able to turn her weaving into a sustainable income. A few years ago she was able to install electricity in her home, which is incredibly rare in her area. Now she is able to better work on cloudy days. Furthermore, she has been able to pay for her grandson Jonathan's tuition fees. It is her hope to have a wall built around her property soon to give her house greater security. Victoria has taken this skill and passed it on to others as well. She has 3 highly active students that are working with her. Each Loom Woven Shawl, Wrap, Dish Towel, Scarf, and Placemat are handwoven by these special women in Uganda.
