Congratulations to Educate! Scholar Aero Lillian Olok, founder of Generate for Generations! Olok and her self-sustaining enterprise recently received two awards: Best Young Employer of the year by the Federation of Uganda Employers and the Best Micro Enterprise of the year 2013 by the International Labor Organization Uganda.
Olok founded Generate for Generations, formerly Namugungo Good Samaritan Project, in 2009 as a resource for widows and single mothers affected by HIV/AIDS. Through the entrepreneurial production of intricate bead jewelry, the enterprise has created jobs for numerous women and raised esteem about their economic potential.
In addition to her awards, we are also excited for Lillian as she is currently participating in the highly-competitive Kanthari Institute Leadership Course in Trivandrum, India! We know she will grow so much from the experience and we wish her safe travels and lots of learning!
