Hilda will be recognized as a top embroider this year, after working for Kaross for over 20 years, her skills are invaluable. She learned how to embroider from Anna Machete, who introduced her to Kaross. As well as being a top embroiderer, Hilda is a dedicated mother, grandmother, and head of her household.
The love and respect they have for one another was my first impression when I went to sit with them on their porch. Watch brought tea, while their neighbour quickly came to take their only grandchild from his grandmothers’ arms. The little baby is called Progress Mboni Diploma Nkuna. With names like that he can only have a prosperous future. He is obviously the apple of his grand parents’ eyes.
