Image for Atim Sunday

Growing up under the care of her single mother, Sunday lacked many opportunities and resources. Despite her difficult childhood, she grew up determined to better herself. She tried to make a living my selling roasted maize by the side of the road but the amount of money she earned could not support her entire family. Working at KNOWN SUPPLY has not only given her the resources to afford all of her family’s basic needs, but she has also been able to save some of her income for her own small business.

DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE
“My future plan is to acquire a plot of land for my family and also support my husband in paying the children’s school fees. I also want to continue with my IGA (small business) so that I can supplement my income from crocheting.”

FAVORITE THING ABOUT NORTHERN UGANDA
“The best thing about Northern Uganda is freedom and peace that is currently prevailing.”

LOVE DEFINED
“Love is sharing with others both happy and sad moments.”

Dear Atim Sunday, I asked some Krochet Kids beanies for Christmas this year as I am moving to a colder area of New Zealand next year to attend University. One of the beanies my Mum bought for me was a beautiful one made by you! I am very grateful to you and the Krochet Kids initiative as, because of them, I was able to have a gorgeous beanie handmade by you, and even though I'm all the way in New Zealand there is a way that my family was able to contribute to helping yours. Thank you Atim Sunday! From Emma :)

Dear Atim Sunday,

I want to thank you for the beautiful beanie you have made! One of our friends gave it to us as a gift for our newborn baby boy, and although he is too small to wear it now, we look forward to the day that he can! You've got a great gift, and I hope and pray that you can use it to help your family and bring joy to many others as well. God be with you!

Hello Atim,
I am writing from Lowell, Massachusetts, United States of America. I just started crocheting myself and I haven't mastered anything beyond making scarves yet, and even those don't come out looking quite right when I make them. I received my hat today and it's perfect for the cold weather we're getting this time of year. The moment I put it on, it made me smile. Thank you so much for making it!

I recently recieved a beautiful gift that you created. "The Betty" hat from my sister for my birthday in yellow, my FAVORITE color. On my birthday I also received a yellow scarf that matched the beautiful hat you made me perfectly. However, my cousin knitted this scarf for me. I was so pleasantly surprised that these two gifts made with love were such a perfect match! I love them both and wear them thankfully.
