SOLD OUT Virginie's Box of Hope 2024

Virginie is the dye master at Handspun Hope.  She cares for her three children and three nieces. She lost her husband when she was pregnant with her third child. In 2005, Virginie discovered she was HIV+. She spent many sleepless nights wondering how she would provide for her children. She now praises God for her home and employment. Virginie is now teaching several of the other widows to read and write.

“People say I am always smiling. I like to joke with others for the purpose of getting whoever is sad in a happy mood. In my free time, I love visiting friends and relatives and praying. I hope to own land and plant potatoes.”
