Monica’s Story – unpaid dancer to female photographer!


When Monica’s mother died, she had to stop going to school. While she went further than most in the slum — through Senior 4 — she didn’t have any skills that made her employable.

But that might have been the best thing to happen to her, as it led her to Touch the Slum, photography, and a newfound passion to become the best female photographer in Kampala.

This is her story.


Every Tuesday in November and December, we will be bringing you a story, told by the girl herself, of how Touch the Slum has impacted her life.

We hope you enjoy this series and seeing how you have so tremendously impacted the lives of the eight girls featured — and many, many more!

Mwebele nnyo!
