Daphine Kahunde stitched the colorful bird on this brown microsuede zippered pillow.
Daphine lives in southern Uganda, in the diocese of Ruwenzori 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. She will use the funds she receives from her needlework to provide education for her children; medical support for herself and her family; supplies for her crops; and maintenance and repairs to her home.
Daphine 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-confidence.
