- Kibeho Embroideries
My name is Jeanne Mukanyana. I am 27 years old and I have three children. Before the start of the project, I had a very difficult life. I was working for people in their fields or removing bins for them. This is not a job that pays well but today thanks to the project, I am able to feed my family and buy clothes for my children. I am a proud mother and feel valued by contributing to the welfare of my family. My wish would be to see the project grow so it can make a bigger impact in my life. At the moment, I do not have a house. I am renting. I would love to own a house in the future. The project has had a positive impact in acquiring new skills of embroidering while teaching us how to work together in a group as women. We share a lot and encourage each other. The priest is always supporting the community by making sure the money reaches us on time. We do not have any issue getting the pay once we deliver our bags. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Netty Butera and the team in Pretoria, South Africa. Our lives have changed for the better and we keep you in our thoughts and prayers. God bless.
