This handsome kob, created by Beatrice Bagambaki, is displayed on a 16-inch zippered pillow. Dark brown faux suede fabric and olive trim highlight the rich colors in the embroidery.
Beatrice lives in southern Uganda, in the diocese of Rwenzori close to the Rwandan border – a particularly beautiful area known as the “Switzerland” of Uganda. Her life revolves around caring for her family and her crops.
Beatrice 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; and maintenance and repairs to her home.
