The village of Kasese, in the mountainous region of Western Uganda, is home to a collective of women who weave these intricate baskets in the hope of overcoming poverty. These resilient and talented women create baskets that feature intricate, geometric designs.
Calling on their ancestors for their knowledge and skills, these women have been creating a new future. Profits from the sale of these baskets go towards school fees for their children and food for their families. This entire community flourishes because of their shared appreciation for nature and heritage – and all of the many blessings that come with that appreciation.
