After her mother passed away when she was 10 years old, Jackline moved in with her uncle who, at the time, was taking care of many other children. Due to an unexpected pregnancy, Jackline’s uncle could no longer afford the fees to send her to school so she was forced to drop out. Through KK Uganda, Jackline is able to provide for her family and give her children the education she was never able to receive.

DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE
“I plan to build a house on the piece of land I was given by my uncle and pay school the fees for my children.”

INTERESTS & HOBBIES
“Netball is my most enjoyable activity.”

FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT NORTHERN UGANDA
“I love seeing the rapid development in Northern Uganda after a long time of war.”

MESSAGE TO KK intl.
“Thank you KK intl. for the great support that has enabled us to pay fees. Continue with the same spirit of supporting people.”

I really hope that you build your house nice and strong and raise your family for a long time to come. Yet again, THANK YOU!

Jackline, I purchased your hat today from a surf shop on cape cod, Massachusetts. Without knowing to much about kkinternational, I noticed your name inside. I was really curious of your story. I immediately came home and found you on the website. I send you my good juju for your family and determination to build a home on your land and pay for your children's schooling! Your persistence will pay off.

With a warm heart and appreciation,

Hello Anena.

I am writing to thank you for the beautiful work you did in creating a warm winter owl hat (the Hoot) for our beautiful 10 month old baby girl Ava. She is wearing it now as it is becoming cold here in Ottawa, Canada. Your sacrifices as a mother will reap their rewards. Thank you again for your beautiful and caring work. I look forward to another piece for our daughter next year!

Anena Jackline, thank you for the beautiful and warm hat you hand made. I will have to purchase another one since my eleven year old loves it so much, I think it has become hers! I'm sure she went into school today talking about KKi and is spreading the good word. We spent much time on this website last night learning about this wonderful program. We are looking forward to purchasing more items!

Anena,
I saw "the hoot" you made in a store in California and I immediately knew my daughter Chloe would LOVE it!! I brought it back to Colorado where she and her big sister Mia are sure to argue over who's turn it is to wear it.
From Northern Uganda, to California, to Colorado...your hat is well traveled!
As the girls outgrow this cute hat, we'll look for others from you and the Krochet Kids intl. group!
Good luck to you and your family!
