Empowering women in South Sudan

Empowering stability through economic sustainability

Alice Konga is all too familiar with the price of violence. After years in Ugandan refugee camps, she has found peace in her native Kajo Keji County and in her work for Lulu Life – an employee-owned enterprise empowering stability through economic sustainability.

Despite her hardships, Alice retains a wide smile and a bright sense of humor. She is a grandmother to three and a matriarch to many. She oversees 25 shea cooperatives made up of women throughout her Kuku ethnic community.
