Jenifer Mbakire

Jenifer Mbakire is a 40 year old married mother with four kids and one on the way - due anytime now! She was the second teacher employed at Lift Up Girls and was eager to help train young girls in tailoring and contribute to her own family's income.  Because she lives 30 minutes from the Lift Up Girls site in Iganga, she must take a Boda motorcycle or taxi bus to get to work each weekend.  They are struggling to pay school fees for their four children and Lift Up Girls is eager to provide a regular monthly income for this family.
