Kireka area just outside Kampala.  Most all of these folks are from Gulu in the north... insecurity with LRA made them move south and accept jobs that are basically breaking rocks so it can be used in construction materials.  The mothers in these families make about 50 cents a day breaking the rocks their husbands haul out of the quarries.  Doreen Anican hopes her one-year-old child OBAMA won't ever really have to use his hammer to break rocks... but she didn't think she would be doing this job for the last ten years either.
