One of the storyteller was Connie Regan-Blake who was invited to visit Uganda by "Bead For Life"(www.beadforlife.org), an NGO helping women lift themselves out of extreme poverty. Many of them are displaced refugees from the horrors and atrocities of civil war in northern Uganda and are dealing with the ravages of AIDS. Connie was welcomed into their homes and hearts as if she was family and she listened to their profound and transformative stories. The video below is Namakasa Rose's story.
