The sweet yellow bird on this purse was embroidered by Judith Byanjeru. The 10” x 8” x 2” black denim cross-body purse has an outside zippered pocket and detachable strap and is lined with blue/green/gold cotton batik.
Judith 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.
Judith 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.
