Problem in South Sudan

The women of South Sudan are industrious. Agnes buys bags of sweet potatoes, hires men to carry them across the border into Congo. There, they trade the sweet potatoes for teak poles which are loaded onto trucks back in South Sudan and driven to Kampala, Uganda. Agnes then hires a  car to beat the trucks to market where she sells the teak poles. The funds from the sale are reinvested into used clothing that she ships to South Sudan and markets through her three local retail stores. Profits from the sale of the clothes are then used to hire boys to make bricks. These are used to build a basic house that is then rented out.

All of this labor is to make enough money to pay the school fees for her children. If enough money does not come in, the girls are the first to loose out.

Hope Cloth production manager AnnGrace explains the power of cloth making to simply feed a family, educate a daughter and give hope to the hopeless.
