After the death of her parents, Beatrice was left under the care of her eldest sister where life was hard, food was scarce, and fear was prevalent in her life due to the unknown whereabouts of the rebel army. Since being enrolled in the KK Uganda program, she not only has a reliable source of income that can support her husband and children with food, medical care, and clothing, but she also has a support system that enables her to forget about her worries.

DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE
“My future plan is to ensure that I work hard and that my children study and get educated to the highest level. I also want to save as much money as possible so that I will be able to buy a plot of land and later build a house for my children.”

INTERESTS & HOBBIES
“My most enjoyable activity during my free time is gardening and visiting friends and relatives.”

MESSAGE TO KK intl.
“I am very appreciative for the job opportunity. KK intl. should continue with the good work of supporting vulnerable women in Northern Uganda.”

Hi Auma,

I wanted to say thank you for the scarf you made. It's is absolutely stunning and I do not think that I could have made it myself. I read that you are supporting your family through working with KK International, I am happy that you have found a place that supports your future goals. I am currently wearing my scarf and have had multiple people tell me how beautiful it is. I am glad that I am able to put a face to your name and wear the scarf that you handmade is even more special.

Your hat called out to me with it’s beautiful design as it reminded me of a shawl my mother used to wear that just came across my mind yesterday. Many thanks to you.

Beatrice,
Thank you so much for my beautiful navy blue and silver hat! I LOVE it! It is exactly as I hoped. It is keeping me warm and happy. I love knowing that you made it and that will bring me even more joy when I wear it each day. It is getting very cold here in Virginia (we are near Washington, DC) and I will be wearing it a lot!

Thank you for sharing your talent with us! Best wishes to you and your family!
Love, Kerry
