Christine has embroidered a chorus of very colorful birds in the trees and vines of the forest. The piece measures 20" x 14" and could be framed for a child's room, displayed on a pillow, or anywhere else your imagination may take you.
Christine lives in Uganda, in the town of Hoima in the district of Bunyoro-Kitara. Hoima is northwest of Kampala. Living in a simple house, Christine’s 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; seeds or fertilizer for her crops; repairs to her home; and provide for any orphans for whom she cares as a result of the war, HIV AIDS or other illnesses.
Christine meets weekly with her fellow needleworkers. The community they have developed through Threads of Blessing encourages each of them and has significantly raised their self-esteem.
