Product Description

This beautiful 8" basket was handmade by artisans in and around Uganda’s Acholi Quarter, a slum that is home to thousands of war refugees who fled the LRA in Northern Uganda. One of these artisans, Jennifer, is a role model for other women like her who are HIV positive. She has found financial security through her artistry, as well as through her motorcycle taxi and work farming sesame seeds. Her work means she no longer needs to beg for money to pay for her medications or provide for her family, and she even makes time to counsel other HIV positive women about leading healthy, happy lives. Support for artisans like Jennifer provides hope that becomes exponential as it is shared with others!
