When war in northern Uganda intensified, family problems started to surface in Betty’s home. Life became more difficult when her family would sleep in the local church because of the fear of the rebels. Fortunately, her and her family members were never abducted, but the lack of a stable home and income caused a lot of financial stress. KK Uganda gave her, the sole family provider, the resources and tools necessary to support her family financially.

“I want to save part of my money which I earned through crocheting to buy a piece of land and stop renting huts.”

“Crocheting has helped me so much. My children are now in school and I no longer do casual work for all of my basic needs.”

“I like northern Uganda because of its beautiful scenery and fertile soil. The people are hospitable even during the prolonged war which went on for over twenty years.”

“Thank you for the great work. I pray that God bless you and me so that I can show love by working diligently through the skills I have acquired.”

Aciro Betty!

I was just thinking to myself as I got dressed this morning how much I love wearing the clothes I've bought during my travels around the world and how each piece means so much more to me because of the story behind it. It was perfect timing that your hat should arrive today! Even though I have never been to northern Uganda, I am grateful to be able to know a little about your life and the love with which my hat was made. I hope you are well on your way to owning your own piece of land! God bless and thank you!

You're awesome. Thank you for knitting my hat. I wish I could come to Uganda to say thank you...but this will have to do. I pray that you and your family are blessed. Our Father in heaven smiles at you and counts you among his best friends. One love.

Dear Aciro Betty,

Greetings from the United States! I received, as a gift, a pair of shoes that had a brightly colored stripped crocheted patch on them. I love these shoes and especially love the bright and happy colors of the crocheted patch. Mostly I love that I am wearing a pair of shoes that has work done by you all the way from Uganda! That part really makes me smile! May your dreams of buying land come true and may you continue to provide for your children. Thank you again.

Thank you Aciro Betty. My hat is absolutely fabulous and I receive many compliments, even from strangers. I love the color, fit and style. It's perfect in its look and function because it has kept my head warm so far this winter in New England. I am now a big fan of yours. Please continue to do the great work you do and continue to follow your dreams.
p.s. i read your bio to my 10 year old daughter and she thinks you are pretty.

Thank you.
