    Hellen, Thank you for being a peace keeper in your country Uganda. I have never thought that Chilli can be such a crop that one can rely on for financial sustainability. Your story is a reminder that it is possible to make a positive change where we are, using what we have. Peace is what we need and everything else will follow. Thank you for bridging the gap, and for preaching unity among your people. Keep up your good work, Clene

    Hellen, thank you for the work you are doing and thank you again for challenging us to remember that we can all earn a living from our way of life-that is if as a person I come from a traditionally pastoral or agriculturalist background, I can still ingeniously create a way of first of all, improving the way things are done, maintain those methods that have proved to give results to earn money. It is amazing to know that I do not necessarily have to leave my station in life in the hope of an opportunity that may never come or that it is too late to make a bold and definite decision. Thank you for going back home. Cheers, Gloria Nalule.
