While held in captivity, Adyero Brenda witnessed many cruelties. Today, Brenda looks forward to the future and finally feels at peace with her life.  She is able to provide for her children with the money that she earns as a beneficiary. Brenda expresses a faith and confidence like no other, and believes that she was protected during the war so that she could do this good for her own children.

“I dream of sending my children to school and also of buying a piece of land to build a house on so that my sisters and I might raise our families together.”

“I enjoy domestic activities, especially cooking. Uganda is blessed with healthy crops that make for delicious traditional foods.”

“Thank you for the work you have done in our lives. I pray that God will continue to bless you so that you can continue to bless the vulnerable people of Northern Uganda.”

Hi Aderyo Brenda,

Thanks so much for making my beautiful hat! When I picked it up today at the store I had no idea how much love went into it. I bought the beanie for a trip with my family that's coming up next month near Tahoe. can't wait to wear it and make memories with my loved ones! I hope you live a blessed and happy life.

Thanks again,

Miss Adyero Brenda,

Thanks so much for the knitted cap you have made. I can see the care and quality in it. I am so glad that you are on a path that provides for you and your family. I volunteered some graphic design work for S.O.U.L. Foundation who does work in and around Bujagali Falls, Uganda. I know how important it is to have a hand that helps to pull you up so that you can extend your own hand to others.

I wish for you to have many blessings in the future.

Yours Truly,
Kerry M.

Dear Brenda,
Thank you so much for the black, Jackson style hat that I just received. It is so soft, warm and beautiful; I love it! I really hope that you achieve your dream of raising your children together with your sisters in your very own home. My children live with their mothers in New Hampshire while I am living in Boston but I take every opportunity to be with them and my nieces and nephews. I understand your desire to put them in school and to see them happy. I was just talking to my roommate, who is from Sierra Leone, about the rebel armies in his area and I am very glad that you are ok. He was able to run away but I don't believe that that's always an option. I hope KKi succeeds wildly and that all your dreams come true for you and yours.

Dear Adyero Brenda,

Thank you so much for your hard and talented work on these hats. I ordered the Barney hat in Mustard and I love it! You and the other artists are such an inspiration. I cannot fathom the hardships you have went through and persevered.
My friend volunteered in the Peace Corps in Uganda and has since met a Ugandan woman, married, and they now have a beautiful baby boy, so supporting people in Uganda has an extra priority and has an extra special connection for me and my friends.

I will definitely be ordering more items for friends and family when Christmas comes around!

I wish you and your family joy and that all you strive for you reach.
