100 Women: Ugandan woman who helps war-affected rebuild lives

A Ugandan woman who was abducted as an 11-year-old young girl by the Lord's Resistance Army returned home one year later to find her parents were dead.

She decided to become a tailor and has set up a school to share her knowledge with other women in Gulu whose lives were destroyed by war.

The BBC's 100 Women season runs online, on BBC World News TV and on BBC World Service radio from 27-29 October. Join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter, using the hashtag #100Women.
