Dancing Girl has brought joy and dancing in my family. From the wages I get from making Dancing Girl earrings, I can give my children Education and meet all my Basic Needs.I can also take care of my mother who watches the children when they are out of school while I work.I pay my bills in time and now i train my sister on how to make the Dancing Girl Earrings so that she can also work with AfrikaPamoja and earn wages to support her child since she is also a single mother.

When i tested  HIV + at the age of 16 years, i thought my life had come to an end since my family members rejected me.Then i joined a group of other girls at Temak who were positive like me.Here i was introduced to Afrikapamoja project and i learned to make Recycled paper beads necklaces.This simple skill is giving me good and fair earnings, and now i can eat  Healthy, buy my Medication, pay my rent and continue living a healthy life like any other person.
