Florence Okidi

Florence Okidi, age 36,  is a mother to 8 children—4 boys and 4 girls—whose age range from 15 years to 3 years old. Other members of her household include her husband and brother-in-law. Florence moved to Jinja from Pader district because of the war.  It is her 3rd year in Pittek and before joining, she made a living by means of a mobile tea dispensary which she carried up and down the road throughout the day. She is grateful that Pittek has allowed her to quit this grueling job while giving her enough money that she doesn’t have to go hungry before bed or helplessly suffer from illness. She hopes to soon buy a good house and move out of her single room makeshift house.
