Sseko has helped me become a professional with a career. #bosslady! (Aggie has been with Sseko since the beginning and started as an Intern. She has risen to General Manager of Sseko Uganda, and is a total Boss Lady!) Working with Sseko has helped my family a lot through income and helped me to be a good mother by learning from the other mothers that I work with. I can afford to send my daughter, Abi, to school and a nanny to take care of my two other little ones.
My children are very proud of me, especially Abi who is older and understands what I do more. She knows I am a professional and loves telling people about my office. I feel very connected to our Sseko Fellows and enjoy learning about them when they come to visit. We have the same goals of empowering women and creating better lives for each other.
Oooh New Mothers! First, thank you for taking on the challenge. It’s not easy, but it is worth it. Remember, you are perfect the way you are and no mother is imperfect. Love your kiddos the way they are, you will do your best for them and that is all you can do.
