Arach Mary

Image for Arach Mary

After completing primary school, Arach Mary was forced to drop out of school in senior two due to a pregnancy. Her education was greatly affected during the war when she was not able to work or attend classes. With the money that she has earned at KK Uganda, Mary has been able to provide for her mother and siblings. She hopes to save all of her money to go back to school and to educate her child in the future.

“My dream is to go back to school and also educate my baby in future.”

“My most enjoyable activity is sporting. I am an athlete and enjoy running most of all.”

“The message I have for KK intl.  is one of thanks and that they should continue to support the vulnerable women in the war torn areas.”

Thank you so much for the beautiful and stylish Bella beanie you made for me, I think it was my favorite Christmas gift! Right now where I live in Indiana it's -14 degrees outside so my new hat is definitely coming in handy. :) I really enjoyed reading about you and I also happen to enjoy running! It's a great sport! What you're doing is truly awesome. Thanks again and God bless you!

Hi, my name is Jack. I'm 13 years old. My grandmother got me your scarf for Christmas. The weather has been freezing cold here in Indiana and have used it a few times now. Thanks!

Thank you for the beautiful hat. I am a wedding photographer who received my Betty hat as a Christmas gift from one of my brides.

Thank you SO much for my hat (I got a Betty design)!! It is beautiful and I love the way it feels :) It's a white one and I really adore it! I can't wait until it cools off so I can wear it all the time (and honestly, I'm going to tell everybody all about it!) I've already told a bunch of friends about it and told them to buy one too! I think the best part was seeing that you signed your name on the inside of it; I really feel like I always have a part of you with me & it reminds me to pray for you and your family/child :)

You are such an inspiration and such a beautiful woman! I'll pray for you all the time and I hope that you're able to go to school and provide an education for your family. Good luck and thanks so much!

I finally received my hat today after what seemed like forever of waiting. For a week I anxiously anticipated the arrival of my Betty hat. When I recieved the package in the mail I couldn't even wait to get inside before opening it. I knew the hat would be wonderful but I never could have imagined the exquisitely beautiful hat I held in my hands. It is truly a beautiful piece created by you. I am so grateful to you for taking the time to make it for me and I truly wish you the best in your endeavor to go back to school and provide a better future for yourself, your child, and your family. You are a very amazing selfless individual and I admire your strength. I hope to hear of your success in like in the near future. Thank you again so very much for your time spent creating my hat I hope to see your name on more of my future KKi purchases.
