After being in captivity for nine months, Kevin was lucky enough to escape during one of the village raids and later joined her siblings to live with her aunt who had been taking in many orphans. With determination, she soon took up the task of trying to feed all of the children including her siblings. Eventually, she enrolled in a tailoring school and got connected with KK Uganda where she now has been able to pay for her sister’s school fees, help her grandmother, and pay for her child’s medical fees.

LOVE DEFINED

Hi Aparo! I purchased a winter hat you had made around Christmas time last year and it’s my favorite winter hat! It’s a beautiful color and it’s held up through some very bad weather. Thank you so much for making this hat that I wear all the time when it’s cold.

Warmest regards,

Hi there. I have had one of the beanies that was made and signed by you for a few years and pulled it out the other day to wear it. I got so many compliments on it. And people wanted to know where I got it. I took a picture of the inside where you signed it and told tje story about Krochet Kids. I love knowing your story and how this helped you be able to share your talent, as well as helped to improve your life. You are amazing amd very inspiring. The beanie means even more now that I know more about you. Your story brought out several emotions, sadness, heart break, as well as gratitude and inspiration. Thank you so much. I will cherish my mustard yellow, special beanie forever. Much love, peace, respect, and happiness to you. Love Lori

It is especially warm and soft, and I can tell that a lot of time and work was put into creating it.

Dear Mrs. Aparo Kevin,
Thank you so much for the hard work that you have done. I'm loving this product that you have made. My brother gave me the product The Betty for Christmas and he knows I love different crochets. When I saw your wonderful piece of art I absolutely fell in love with it. I'm recently learning how to crochet myself and i'm enjoying it as I learn more how to do it. I hope that you one day pursue your dream of owning your own business and taking more care of your wonderful family. You are a very talented, and strong willed person and know that you can do anything you put heart and mind too. I hope soon to be buying more of your products. Thank you so much and God Bless You:)
-Sincerely,
Betty J. Robbins
