Beatrice lives in the district of Rwenzori in Uganda.  This area is often referred to as the "Switzerland" of Uganda with its beautiful high mountain peaks and valleys.  The mountains are often terraced for farming.

Living in a simple home, Beatrice'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; seeds or fertilizer for her crops; repairs to her home and provide for any orphans in her care.

Beatrice 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-confidence.
