This beautiful, funky purse was made by a woman who volunteers as a cook and/or teacher at one of the carepoints in Swaziland that feeds and cares for orphans and vulnerable children. Timbali Crafts is an Adventures in Missions ministry that gives women who live in impoverished, rural areas of Swaziland the chance to make much needed money for their families. Many of these women are widows. They are all raising their own children, grandchildren, or other people's children in a country with the highest HIV/AIDS rate in the world.
