Nsita Ahumuza created the colorful bird on a branch that decorates this 13" x 11" x 3" purse or pouch. For use as a purse, it has a detachable wrist strap and interior pocket. Or it can be used as a handy stand-up pouch to store small items. The outer fabric is black denim, and the batik lining and strap echo the colors of the bird, in tones of orange, blue, and green.
Nsita 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.
Nsita 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.
