Benitah Nassonko created the charming collection of farm animals that adorns this large tote bag. The brown canvas tote with African print lining and trim has a large outside pocket, and an inside separating zipper allows you to close the tote.
Benitah lives in Mukono, close to the capital city of Kampala, Uganda. Mukono is also home to a large Christian university. Her life revolves around caring for her family and her crops.
She meets weekly with her fellow needle workers. The community they have developed through Threads of Blessing encourages each of them and has significantly raised their self-esteem.
Benitah will use the funds she receives from her needlework to provide education for her children; medical support for herself and her family; seeds or fertilizer for her crops; maintenance and repairs to her home; and provide for any orphans for whom she cares as a result of the war, HIV/AIDS or other illnesses.
