The relation between Agness and her daughter Beauty is very strong. Everyday they spend plenty of time together volunteering and working. In fact, Agness, who is a 43 year old widow and mother of five children, started the Cry Community School in Misisi compound, which has been in existence since 1997.
Since then, she teaches there every morning and her first daughter Beauty every afternoon. They both volunteer at the school, but through the efforts of the Vendor Coordinator and his assistant were inducted into the Vendor Development Programme and in February 2009 become The Big Issue vendors.
Although in the field they dont pitch together; Agness -says- “it is worth it as the opportunity avails me to continue with my teaching which is useful for my community, while earning some money for me and my family.”
