The people, governance practices, and partners that make the organization tick.
Brett Krieble is a longtime educator teaching history and psychology. Her involvement in Uganda began ten years ago when she became involved with an organization doing work there. After many trips to northern Uganda, her love for the people resulted in a desire to help provide economic opportunities for women in the Gulu community, as well as the opportunity to share her love of Ugandan culture with her Indiana high school students. After several years of planning and research, The Ribe Project was formed in collaboration with Ugandan Director, Akena Boni.
Akena Boni was born and raised in Gulu, Uganda. He is a proud member of the Acholi tribe who suffered a great deal during the civil war that took place over twenty years in northern Uganda. His experiences during this war played a major role in shaping his empathetic nature and his desire to bring about change in his homeland. After being kidnapped at the age of 10 by the Lord's Resistance Army, to serve as a child soldier, he was able to eventually escape his captivity, although he was shot by his captors in the process. His commitment to give back and help rebuild the economy of his Acholi community has never wavered.
