Jully lives in a village in northwest Uganda in the district of Nebbi, close to the River Nile and the Congo. Living in a mud hut with a thatched roof, Jully'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 and provide for any orphans in her care.
Jully meets weekly with her Threads of Blessing group. The community they have developed encourages each of them and has significantly raised their self-confidence.
