Rose is married and mother to three beautiful children aged from seven months old to four years old.
Rose and her family are lucky enough to eat three meals a day. Sometimes they even can afford to buy some posho and maybe meat once a week.
The rent a small farm to grow cassava, maize and beans on. Rose says that one of their big problems is that they farm is a long one mile walk away from her house.
Rose also walks forty minutes each day to collect the two jerry cans of water her family needs. She is not physically able to carry two jerry cans by herself and her children are too young to help. She either has to pay a local child to help her, or make the forty minute track twice a day. African men do not carry water...
Malaria is especially hard on her young family. Her children get malaria many times a month. The also suffer from colds and flu.
She says her major problems are the long distances she has to travel for medical services and that her children are constantly suffering from malaria.
She would like Americans to provide a market for African products and her greatest wish would be to open a salon in Kampala.
