Faith Abitimo embroidered a "Tortoise eating grass" displayed on this 8" x 10" journal cover. The journal is made of dark denim with an African batik fabric lining. The notebook itself is a standard composition book that is easily replaced.
Faith lives in Kampala, the capital city of Uganda. Her life revolves around caring for her family and her crops.
Faith will use the funds she receives from her needlework to provide education for her children and adopted orphans, medical support for herself and her family, seeds or fertilizer for her crops, and maintenance and repairs to her home. She meets weekly with her fellow needleworkers. The community they have developed through Threads of Blessing encourages them and has significantly raised their self-confidence.
