“A woman should not be sitting waiting for her husband”
Cossy is amazing. She is a survivor of violence at the hands of her husband, who beat her when he found out they were both HIV positive. When Cossy’s husband died, she sought support from ActionAid Uganda, got training in women’s rights and business skills and has gone on to start her own basket-weaving business. Now she trains other women in basket weaving and hairdressing, all while running her own successful shop. What a woman!
