Every journey requires faith and a first step. In my case, it started with a woman. It was 2004 and I was a spoiled, selfish, 19 year old college student looking forward to a summer adventure. Two weeks into a trip I met a Ugandan woman named Sarah. Sarah lived her life with great meaning and purpose and sacrificed everything she had to care for 24 children who slept on her floor. I knew that there were poor children in the world. But for the first time, I SAW them. I saw their mats, distended stomachs, and their sores. I wanted to help. I moved to Uganda after graduating from SMU in 2006 and came to love Ugandan mothers like Sarah, who were desperately trying to care for their children. I realized that meaningful job creation is critical and started Akola, "She Works", in 2007 with 15 women making jewelry under a tree. Today, Akola has blossomed into a thriving purpose-driven jewelry brand and manufacturing business that creates beautiful designs that build up the lives and livelihoods of 200 women living in poverty.
