Tanja Dietzel-Borissowa is originally from Thuringia/Germany and has been visiting Uganda the first time in 2007. During her first long-term stay in Uganda, she worked at the NGO "Vision for Africa International". From the beginning, it was clear that she would like to help those in need in the north of the country. The connection to Gulu was made through a pastor from Gulu.
Tanja founded the NGO “from nobody to somebody”, and since then she meets and identifies the women and children who are to be supported. She organizes the sale of the paper beads and keeps in contact with sponsors and volunteers in German-speaking countries. She is responsible for the finances of the project in Uganda.
Christine Toka is 44 years old, married, has five own children and takes care of a total of 9 children whose parents have died. Her husband works as a mechanic in Sudan and is hardly ever present. Christine was one of the first members of the "Winning Woman" group. She is the sister of the late Sarah Akot who used to lead the women’s group. Christine was unanimously elected as new head of the jewellery project. She is reliable, punctual and honest; and her enjoyment of life is contagious.
