I distinctly remember sitting with her on the sandal production line while she diligently learned the manufacturing process while somehow managing to ask great questions and laugh loudly as she worked.

In celebration of mothers everywhere, we checked in with a few Sseko Fellows and Sseko Uganda partners for a quick chat!

I immediately plastered myself to the window shouting "Look, a Fair! It's [...]
