An AP writer recently related a story about the rock quarry in Acholi Quarters. This dangerous quarry is the same one in which Acholi Beads bead makers used to work. The article chronicles a woman who died when a rock ledge collapsed one her. As chance goes, I happened to be there that day, and heard this story firsthand. I even saw the rocks that killed her.
For us at Acholi Beads, this underscores our mission to give Acholi women a safe and profitable means of supporting their families and rebuilding their lives.
