They call people from my tribe Rwandese, but this is just because we are on the border to Rwanda. We had a war between my tribe and others called Banyanga and Batembo. So this forced us to leave Congo. My journey from Congo to Uganda was very complicated, and this is because we didn't know where we were going. We came to Uganda without even knowing that we were going to Uganda. We were not the only family in that situation, running, there were many.

Meanwhile, women's soccer champions at the Federation are working tirelessly to turn limited resources into maximum opportunity.
