Despite her mother’s hard work, the death of her father caused much hardship for Agnes and her family. Looking for a better life, Agnes went to live with her uncle where she was then brutally mistreated by his wife which led to her decision to drop out of school and flee back to her mother. After being home for one week, Agnes was abducted by the rebels and lived in captivity for two months. Being apart of KK Uganda has given her the finances to seek medical treatment, provide food, and buy household items for her and her family. The program has also enabled her to pay for her children’s education.

DREAMS FOR FUTURE
“My future dream is to educate my children, buy a plot of land to build for my children, and seek thorough medical treatment for a disease that has tortured me for close to eight years. Now I know that all will be fine because I can now afford the medical drugs.”

FAVORITE THING ABOUT NORTHERN UGANDA
“The most beautiful thing about northern Uganda is the soil. It’s so fertile and good for agriculture activities.”

LOVE DEFINED
“Love means happiness and care for one another.”

This hat, made buy you is my favorite hat. It fits perfect, and with my shaved head it is difficult to find one that stays on my weird shaped head. I wear it everywhere! here is Wisconsin its cold all the time so having a good hat is very important. Not to mention it does look very cool, all my friends say so. Thank you for making it, I love it :) I hope everyday brings a little happiness for you.

I bought my beanie at a Nordstrom a year or so ago. I discovered the tag on the inside one day with the handwritten name and I was compelled to learn more about you and Krochet Kids. Your story is amazing and inspiring! May you and your family always have the opportunities you need to live a happy and successful life.

Thank you Agnes!

I am so glad that I purchased the "Waldo" beanie and that I had the opportunity to read a little about your life story. I admire your strength and perseverance through the numrerous struggles you have faced, and I am glad that the KKU has been able to help you achieve your dreams.

It doesn't get very in cold in California very often, but I look forward to wearing my beautifully crafted beanie whenever I can. I hope each day brings your closer to your dream of owning your own plot of land, and I hope you and your family continue to stay in good health. I wish you and your family a very Happy Holiday and thank you again for such a wonderfully made product.

Happy Holiday!

Hello, Agnees!

Today I bought a lovely hat crochet by you and I love it!!! It's purple, very warm and very beautiful. We are having a very cold snap here in Washington state so I needed a warm, fashionable hat to wear. I always have a hard time finding suitable hats that fit as my head is smaller than most. Your hat fits me perfectly and I love it!!!

Please keep making more hats as I will surely wear this one out!
Blessings, Peggy

Dear Agnes, My youngest daughter (20) bought me a cute little tiny hat that can be used for a Christmas ornament. I think she picked something made by you because her older sister (26) has been to Uganda two times and loved her visits there. Thank you for making such a cute item. I will think of you every Christmas when I hang it on my tree. I wish you much love, health, and happiness. And I hope you get your piece of land. Happy New Year. Sheila

Dear Agnes,
You have an INCREDIBLE amount of strength. I am confident if you keep strong like you've always been this program will help you. I hope you will never have to feel the pain of your disease, and that you will be able to buy a plot of land and education for your children. I love my Eisley hat you made for me, the color and textures are incredible. Whenever I see or think of the hat I will be reminded of you, and I'm going to keep you in my prayers. Stay courageous, and thank you for the beautiful hat.
