Bosco, like all the Artisans we partner with in Uganda, is a former child solider. He and his now wife were both abducted as children and were forced into Kony’s army (the LRA) for several years before managing to escape. Bosco during this time lost a leg to a landmine, but it doesn’t slow him down at all! He still walks about an hour each way to get to the workshop – arriving with a big smile on his face.
Bosco has a beautiful family with teenagers. He lives in a mud hut home. He said in his quiet manner, “it’s simple but it’s enough.” This is Bosco – he is content with what he has and his one real wish is to send his five children to school. When we asked if he had anything to say to people here, he simply said, “If you can buy our product we can send our children to school.”
