My image : This is myour new life after domestic violence (1/1)

My mother remains my hero in life amidst domestic violence she managed to use all possible means to send me to different schools  for studies. She would brew local brews and sell a jerrican at 5000 UGx equivalent of 1 dollar  , she was forced and she would tell me don't have sympathy on what you but work hard to excel in school tuition worth 60,000UGx would make miss lessons and I remember I was studying in poor schools that exists that exists in uganda , I must appreciate the church that stood with me until I completed my university degree and today I am an advocate for the voiceless  children who are living the lifestyles I underwent . Mothers if supported they are agents of ending violence and instlling hope, from nothing to something today I have given my mother a smile and hope for the future.

Hi Philip,
Its a strength of motherhood. I do not know much about the western world but African mother will always do their best for their kids.
Great to know your mother was one of such.

Hi Philip,
Your mum is a true hero. I am glad she did not resort to drinking or only concentrating on what she was going through but to look beyond that. She is very insightful.
