Mukisa is a Luganda word that means blessing. However it is very difficult to look at things that way concerning Kisenyi. This is because Kisenyi, is synonymous with common social evils ranging from prostitution, drug abuse and alcohol consumption. Dotted with dilapidated mud houses, a dusty environment during the dry season and puddles of smelly water during rainy seasons, malnourished and sickly looking children in tattered clothes, the place is not anything anyone would be eager to call home. Despite these poor living conditions, a group of hard working and resilient women came together and formed Mukisa Women’s group with an aim to acquire income generation skills as well as improve their livelihood. For eight years now, the members of the group with the support of Ministry Resourcing International (MRI) have found hope and a sense of belonging. They are now able to make and export jewellery made out of paper and some of them have acquired small scale businesses in the centre of Kisenyi.
