Meet Babirye

Always with a gentle smile, Babirye is a strong and quiet presence in the textiles team. She is raising a busy family of four boys and one girl. Her youngest, Calvin at thirteen months, is a regular attendee at Shanti’s weekly meeting, while the others are all attending primary school. The money she earns with Shanti’s textile sales supports the school fees for all of these learning children. Originally from the Ntinda area of Uganda, Babirye came to Kasana for medical treatment initially, but is now an integral part of the Shanti community. She dreams of being able to work in the market in Kasana, selling her sewn goods and continuing to support her young family.
