"The Good Shepherd" Hand Embroidery
Harriet Musoke's depiction of The Good Shepherd holding a lamb in his arms measures 9" x 11."
Harriet lives in Kiwanga, Uganda, a village near the city of Mukono close to the capital city, Kampala, and home to a large university.
Harriet’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; 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.
Harriet 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.
