aber grace, tailor

Aber Grace, right, with five of her seven children

Her infant daughter, Sonya, is the newest of Aber Grace's seven children; her oldest is age 15. Aber Grace, who is 33 years old, is the sole support of her large family. She lived in Bobi IDP camp for displaced persons for five years, but was able to leave in 2008 and move to Gulu after receiving tailor training from One Mango Tree. She started working full-time at the One Mango Tree workshop in July 2009. Although she has little time in between childcare and sewing beautiful accessories for One Mango Tree, Aber Grace likes to grow vegetables.
