Before being rescued by a local organization, Rose was abducted and forced into marriage. She was able to find work as a farmhand, and eventually learned about KK Uganda through some of the other women who had been in captivity with her. With the money she has earned through the program, Rose has been able to provide for her children and send them both to school. She enjoys her new work and looks forward to seeing her children graduate from university someday.
DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE
“I want my children to study up to university level because this is the only way that they can overcome poverty. Since I missed the opportunity for formal education, I will work hard so that my children get this chance.”
FAVORITE THING ABOUT NORTHERN UGANDA
“Northern Uganda is a wonderful place because there are good traditional dances and the people dress decently.”
MESSAGE TO KK intl.
“My message to Krochet Kids is that God should bless them for all that they are doing to help the poor women in Northern Uganda.”

All my best,

I just received one of your hats (Waldo - brown) from a dear friend of mine, for my birthday. I love it. One of the biggest problems with the world, is that we are too often disconnected from the sources of our sustenance and products. It is very refreshing to connect with Krochet Kids Int. I will spread the word in hope that others can share the same blessing. Best wishes with your children's education as well as your personal fulfillment. Thank you, dearly.

My sister-in-law bought this beautiful scarf for me for Christmas, but what was more amazing about the present is the story behind the person who made it. At the moment, it is very cold in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, perhaps -20 degrees Celcius and this scarf keeps me very warm, and looking stylish. I have receive numerous complimenst about your work and just want to let you know your scarf made it all the way up north. Sounds like this a great organization that helps people learn a skill which enables them to make a living. Great work, and great scarf!

Hello Aciro Rose!
I saw these hats and head bands in a small botique store in Michigan USA and was emediatelly attracted to them and thought how they would make great gifs for Christmas. So I bought 5 of them and can't wait to tell about the story of Krochetkids!
Then I decided I would love to keep my ears warm and not mess up my hair too. So got 6 all together.
You are a smart, strong woman and will know that when I wear your beartiful head band.
You will inspire me !! Lots of wishes to you and your children, they will do good because of you.
Thanks for your art work.
