Beaming with pride, Christine describes herself as a traditional dancer and cook. During the war in Northern Uganda, Christine lived in fear of the rebels. She lived in constant danger and was forced to sleep in the bushes regardless of the weather. After separating from her husband, she was left to care for her four children. KK Uganda has given her the chance to feed, cloth and pay for her children’s schooling.

“My future plan is to buy a plot of land and animals such as goats and cows to keep for future development.”

“I like singing, dancing and cooking. I can do it with a great passion.”

“Northern Uganda is a beautiful place to stay in. It is fertile.”

Dear Acayo Christine,
I would like to thank you for making my hat, it's really wonderful! I hope you and your kids are doing well especially now that you can provide for them by making beautiful things for people that you don't even know, like me. You are a beautiful and inspirational woman and I wish that I could thank you in person, but you never know maybe one day I will get that chance. Thank you so much for that hat!

Dear sister gave me the gift of a "Betty" hat that you made and I love it! I've had it for over 2 years, but we are having a very cold, snowy winter here so, this year, I wear it almost every day. It keeps my head and ears so warm, it fits just right, and it is just has received many compliments.

You are an inspiration to women all over the world...thank you. I hope you get your plot of land and your animals very soon!

When I received my hat in the mail I immediately turned it inside out to find the tag. I loved how you signed your name and drew a heart giving me a taste of the love you put into all of your beautiful creations. I am so lucky to have a piece of you with me whenever I wear my beanie. I just want to thank you for your courage and strength and for your skill of crocheting so that I could have such a wonderful hat! I cannot thank you enough and I wish you the best of luck in all you pursue.
