Image for Aciro Lucy

After her father passed away, Lucy spent most of her time farming in order to help support her and her family’s education. However, due to the lack of finances, she was forced to drop out of school. During the war, her sister was killed and Lucy took it upon herself to care for her sister’s children which put more of a financial burden on her while trying to stay strong during an emotional time. The KK Uganda program has given her the resources she needs to be able to feed her children, pay for their basic needs and education, and give her a sense of peace about the future.

DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE
“I want to buy a piece of land, educate my children and also start an IGA that will act as my family’s extra income.”

INTERESTS & HOBBIES
“What I enjoy most is playing with my children.”

FAVORITE THING ABOUT NORTHERN UGANDA
“I love the peace in Northern Uganda and I pray it remains good.”

MESSAGE TO KK intl. 
“I appreciate what you guys are doing to touch and change lives here in Uganda.”

This is a fascinating mission which I did not know about until after I found your hat in our local goodwill store earlier today in northern Minnesota, USA.. This hat you made is a blue striped one which caught my attention because it's my favorite color and you did a wonderful job in making it. My daughter likes to krochet too!!.. I wish you all the best in your life and pray for you and your family.. God bless.. Sean

You are such a beautiful woman! And your work is beautiful as well :)

I visited KK in Gulu earlier this year and was inspired by the hard work of you and your friends. I pray that God will bless you and keep you in the new year, and that you will depend on Him as you work to accomplish your goals.
Thanks so much!! And keep that beautiful smile on your face :)

Thank you so much Aciro Lucy!!! I love my 5207.5 black hat!! I received it for Christmas this year and have been wearing it all day, it's so cute and warm! It's made so beautifully and I LOVED seeing your name written on the inside! It warms my heart knowing you made this hat with your time and heart, and that makes it all the more special. God bless you and Krochet Kids. I love supporting a company that glorifies God and does Great Commission work through the name and Love of our savior, Jesus Christ! Your story and work encourages me, thank you so much, I really do love it! =)

Hello Lucy,
I want to tell you I can never seem to find a hat that I like.....it needs to feel good and look good and you made the perfect hat for me. My boyfriend and I were out window shopping and when I saw it and felt the quality I knew if it looked good on me I would buy it, my boyfriend liked it on me so I bought it!! It was only after buying it I realized what it meant to the people who have made them and that made me feel so good.
I hope you are very proud of yourself for what you have done in life and what you are continuing to do!!
I know good things will come into your life!!
Thank you, Denise
