Deborah's Sisters
This program has made me an artist.  I can now do something which makes me endlessly happy, and I know the women in my community.
Lily Flora, DS Member
As a community-based organization, we have been working to improve the status of women in Pader. Deborah's Sisters (DS) is a women's engagement program that works alongside the Northern Uganda Medical Mission. The program helps to bring women from around the community together in a communal setting where they:
  • Build lasting and meaningful friendships
  • Textile printing & beadmaking
  • Acquire business and financial skills
DS spent the summer working on their first art programs and learning new artistic skills.
