Meet Teresa, an incredible lady.
Teresa has been with the Chilli Children Project since 1994! 1994!!!!!
She gave birth to her last born son in 1993, however he was severely malnourished and so they joined the project on an intensive feeding programme.
Her son is now fully healthy and well, working in the Ugandan army!! Teresa says that she paid his school fees using her chilli income.
For the past 25 years, Teresa has continued to faithfully grow chillies, and now uses the income for the grandchildren she is supporting. This harvest, she harvested 6kgs of chillies, the income for which she is planning to buy new school uniforms for her grandkids.
These are the heroes, and this is why we do what we do.
