This 8" x 6" tapestry, created by Josephine Achanda, depicts a shepherd in a red shirt with his cattle.

Josephine lives in Goli, a small village in the district of Nebbi in northwest Uganda.  Nebbi borders Lake Albert to the south, the River Nile to the east and the Congo to the west.  Living in a mud hut with a thatched roof, Josephine'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, or even begin to build a new one.
