Although Anita Openy married young in hopes of finding relief from her desperate poverty, she was only met with more struggles based on her husband’s ethnicity. As a crocheter for KK Uganda, Openy now has the community and consistent income that she has long been refused. She dreams of building a better life for herself and her husband with the money that she saves through the program.

“I enjoy preaching the word of God, doing business and singing gospel songs especially worship and dream of becoming a gospel artist.”

“Crocheting keeps me busy and is a skill that will help me in future even when I leave the program.”

“I am very grateful for the program because I feel blessed and pray that God’s favor should rain upon KK intl. and all its promoters.”

Thank you so much Anita. I gave one of your black beanies to my boyfriend for his birthday. He doesn't ever wear a hat, and it's pretty cold here in Massachusetts, but he loves this one and wont take it off!

Anita Openy,
So grateful for you~ I have the best Danoche Hat here in Akron, Ohio. I love hats. I ususally wear Harley Davidson Hats but I was at the mall and picked this Cream one up and can't stop wearing it. I am going to pray for you and your husband now that I know some one made me a hat, just for me. I am going to pass this message on so others can have their best hat ever.
