For many women in Uganda, especially those solely responsible for raising and protecting their children, exploitation is a common threat. Often, women are forced to support their families through hard labor, earning less than a dollar a day. Many mothers depend on their children working alongside them, to supplement the family’s meager income. Despite dreams of a better life for their children, this cycle of poverty repeats itself, as these women have little education and few marketable skills to change the course of their futures.
