Di Stitt grew up in Sydney working in corporate private enterprise as a PA for 10 years. In 1993 she moved to the Hunter Valley to raise her family and in 2006 she moved to Brisbane, where she happily calls home.
After visiting South Africa in 2007 Di made her first trip to Kenya in 2008.
‘Africa is a beautiful, ancient continent teaming with life and opportunity. One of the most motivating aspects of One Colour is that each year I meet with inspirational African partners. Their example compels and inspires me.’
The knowledge that extreme poverty is still experienced by many millions of people, and the conversely extreme good fortune of life in Australia, left Di with no option but to act. And indeed, for the past decade she has supported much needed work and stability to many families in Kenya.
Since the change in 2018, Di's attention turns solely to the distribution of the Kenana Knitter animals, hand knitted in Kenya via www.kenanadownunder.com.au
