After her mother died and her uncle could no longer afford to pay for school, Lillian dropped out of school, married off and went to work in a factory. As a beneficiary of KK Uganda, her life has changed drastically. She can now afford a house rent and medical bills. She has also been able to save money so that, in the future, she can buy land for her family.

“I plan to pay fees for my daughter to enable her study to the highest level. I also plan to buy a plot of land to put up a two-roomed house for us.”

“I have been a choir member and I enjoy singing in church. Now I also enjoy crocheting.”

“Love means caring for others as you would have others care for you. Love is also sharing and feeling for others.”

“I pray that God empowers the founders of KK intl. and that they continue to bless everyone who is making crocheting beneficial to the disadvantaged people.”

Hi Lillian,

I received a hat and an "infinity" scarf made by you as a Christmas present. Today is the first snow of the season. I live in Ohio where we have very cold winters! I will feel warm and cozy in my hat and scarf going out into the snow. I appreciate the work you put into krocheting these items as I have krocheted in the past. It's a satisfying, but time consuming skill. I love how heavy and solid the scarf and hat are.

I hope you continue with your love of singing and participating in your choir. Music is a wonderful way of embracing life.

Thank you and Happy New Year.

Akwero, Thank you so much for the beautiful work you did crocheting my head band. I am blessed to be able to remember you each time I wear it. I am praying that God provides the fees for your daughter's schooling and for you to purchase land for your home. I have visited Uganda several times (Kapelebyong district) and love your beautiful country. May God bless you and your daughter richly!

When I first heard about this project, I knew that I would never buy another hat or scarf from anywhere else again. I am proud to wear something that was made with such love and care by a woman that I will never meet but whose life I can help change. Bless you and your family Lillian.

well, it was about time for a new beanie, so I went shopping for one. Looking on the racks of tons of popular brands, I came across this one and instantly fell in love with it. I asked the store worker about it and he told me the story, and I bought. Money well spent(: Thank you Lillian.
