Harriet's Story

Harriet Namusoke

 
Harriet Namusoke has overcome many challenges on the road to success. 
 
She was born into a humble family in the Wakiso district in Uganda. As is often the case, her family could only afford school fees for Harriet through high school. Like so many young women her age she proceeded to marry and have a child with a man unable to understand the responsibilities of being a husband and father. She took her 5 year old and left him before realizing she was pregnant again. A failed marriage is a stigma; therefore her family refused to help her. A year later her husband died of AIDS.
Harriet shrewdly joined the NGSP in 2010 and has never looked back. 
 
The NGSP has helped her achieve her short-term goals and become resourceful: her children are enrolled in school and Harriet is proud to call herself a college student. To supplement her bead-making income, she works as a childcare provider at the university. 
 
Now that her children are healthy and happy, Harriet looks at her future as being bright and full of hope.
