Layette Concy was born in a small village in Northern Uganda 1991. During the War in Northern Uganda, rebels from the Lords Resistance Army killed Concy’s grandfather. After that incident, Concy’s family moved to an Internal Displacement Camp when she was eight and she lived there for 11 years.

Concy is now a single mom to one little girl who was born 2013 named Blessings. The money that she gains from working in the Life Beads program will go to help continue her brother’s education.
