First Annual Acholi Gras Clearance Sale!

“You look so fat!”  To American ears, there aren’t many worse things you could say.  But to the Acholi people, who have long struggled with hunger and malnutrition, this is a high compliment.  Men long for a “politician’s belly” and women want to be curvaceous.

With Mardi Gras or “Fat Tuesday” approaching, we’re staging our own celebration of Acholi culture and of the life change that our Ugandan partners are creating for themselves: Acholi Gras, “Fat Acholi.”
