Aisha spends a lot of her time looking after Masitula - her severely mentally challenged twenty year old daugher.
Aisha had some success at getting Masitula in school, but it proved to very difficult as Masitula cannot a lot trouble even speaking. Aisha is trying to teach Masitula some crafts such as mat weaving and basket makings, but Masitula really struggles. She is unable to roll beads.
Aisha and Masitula household is a complicated one. It is fill with various children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and cousins. Many of the children are orphans - their parents victims of the AIDS virus.
Aisha's husband used to collect skins and dry them for a living, but he is not two old. Aisha, despite being sixty-five years old, still digs the land. Sometimes her own land, sometimes others for some extra money. She also makes and sells mats.
She hopes to sell many necklaces on GrassRootsUganda.com so she can send her children and grandchildren to school.
Her greatest wish is to have a good home to raise her family in and that all her family receives and education.
