Eve Namyalo

Eve, Musana artisan in Uganda

 

Also known as "mulalu" ("crazy" in Luganda), Eve is the class clown. Eve is a young mother of three children- two boys and a girl. She used to be reserved and kept to herself, but after starting at Musana and attending English classes, she burst out of her shell. She keeps everyone entertained with her dancing, singing, and generally silly antics.

Originally from a region in central Uganda called Kayunga, Eve grew up with seven siblings. Her grandfather was able to pay her school fees through age 12, but then she had to drop out and was soon after married at age 15. Now that Eve has moved to Lugazi and started working with Musana, she is able to support her three children while her husband works in fishing villages around Lake Victoria. As she works hard to see her savings grow, Eve imagines the day when she'll be able to build a home for her and her children. Eve keeps everyone at Musana in high spirits as she works towards her goal of independence and stability.
