So many grandmothers/great grandmothers are the ones who end up caring for the young children in Uganda. Their own children's generation was hit hard by HIV/AIDS, so they have had to step up to the plate as caretakers of the little ones left behind.

Since I am now a grandmother, I feel it is fitting for me to honor these Ugandan women in my work. These portraits represent the beginning of my photo project about the "jajas".
