Beyond Bits :: Lakot Rose

Beyond Bits | The Story of Rose Lakot

Lakot Rose is one of our eight beneficiaries that graduated from the 31 Bits Program in 2014, and we are beyond impressed and encouraged with how far she has come.

Rose’s life has not been easy… her family was killed by the LRA when she was a little girl and years later her husband was killed as well.

Despite the hardship Rose has faced, she still possesses a joy and optimism about the world around her.

Rose is passionate about children and caring for the health of the women in her community. By using what she’s learned in the health education class at 31 Bits, Rose hosts a monthly nutrition class of her own. She instructs women on nourishment and how to properly feed their children. Because of Rose’s contribution, these women have become a tight knit group and begun to pool their money together to better provide for their children.

Since graduating from 31 Bits, Rose has been using her family land to farm for commercial purposes. She has bananas, sweet potato, carrots, and many more fruits and vegetables!
