Aida is solely responsible for her six children - aged seven to eighteen years old. Her husband died in 1998 in a taxi when it collided head on with another taxi.
She earns ush30,000 ($US 16.22) a month by working as a cook at the local school. Since she works at the school, she only has to pay half the school fees. She still cannot afford all the school fees though, so relies on assistance from friends and MUMYO - a local NGO.
She has no mosquito net and so her children - especially the younger ones - suffer regularly from malaria.
They also suffer from stomach pains and headaches.
Aida prepares two meals a day for her family. Usually a combination of sweet potato, cassava, posho and yams.
She likes GrassRootsUganda.com because it gives a hard working Ugandan a chance to make something of their lives.
At the moment, Aida is renting a single room. She wishes that she could get her own home one day to raise her children in. She also wishes that her children could get a good education.
