Marcy Muwamguzi created the beautiful bird with subtle coloring sitting by its nest on this zippered cross-body purse. The 12" x 10" purse is made of tan weave with black/tan/red paisley lining. It has an interior zippered pocket and a detachable long strap.
Marcy lives in Mukono, close to the capital city of Kampala, Uganda. Mukono is also home to a large Christian university. Marcy's 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.
Marcy will use the funds she receives from her needlework to provide education for her children; supplies for her crops; maintenance and repairs to her home; and medical support for herself, her family, and orphans for whom she cares as a result of the war, HIV/AIDS or other illnesses.
