Awoto Margret began working to help support her family when she was a young girl, which meant she was unable to have a real childhood or attend school. As a beneficiary at KK Uganda, Margret can now provide a life for herself and her family that she never imagined possible. Her children and siblings are able to pay for school fees with the money Margret earns and she is accruing the knowledge and resources necessary to pursue her dreams of owning land and starting her own business.

“My future plan is to start up a business that will help me care for my children and to buy a piece of land and build for my children.”

“To me, love is sharing and helping one another.”

“I enjoy prayers, business, cooperating with one another and also sharing ideas with one another.”

“I would like to say thanks so much to KK intl. and all its promoters and urge them to continue helping the vulnerable community.”

Margaret, I received a very beautiful gift from my son this Holiday made by you. A purple scarf that I will use a lot since I live in th Adirondack Mountains in northern New York up by Canada where the winters are very cold. I am very proud of his purchase since it helps another individual and not a corporation. Thank you it is very lovely, very nice warm and so soft. I wish you all the best.

Thank you, Awoto Margret! The hat you made found its way to California, and found a home with me in 2013. I now live in a cold place, and I wear it almost everyday. Now that I can see the face of the woman who made it, it is more personal. I love it, and will continue to support this organization.

Thank you,

Dear Awoto:
The hat you crocheted made it to me in Seattle, Washington as a 2015 Christmas gift from my daughter. I’ve worn it nearly everyday this Winter. It is so special to me, knowing that you made it and live in N. Uganda, since I was in Uganda in September 2015! I fell in love with your country and its’ people, and would love to return. My husband and I were with a team of 8 people who helped out at the Galileo School in Bul Kur, outside of Gulu, as well as in other parts of your country. I pray continuously for your country, especially for those in N. Uganda. May God help your dreams to continue to be realized, may your children and family prosper and be happy, and most of all, may God’s love and protection be with you all forever. Much love to you. Karen

Dear Awoto Margret,

Thank you so much for making the hat I just bought in California! It is a beautiful blush (pink) color and I love the pattern you used to make it. It is just cold enough here in California to use it as a warm accent to my winter clothing. I teach young children (6-7 years old) and am a mother of three children. I showed the wonderful hat you made to my children and shared the picture and story of you with my oldest daughter. She is most impressed with your handiwork. My prayers will be with you and your group. Thanks for all your hard work. I pray that God will provide you richly with all you deserve.

Dear Awoto Margret,
Hello, my name is Lauren Petty, I was so thrilled when after I bought my black hat I learned about KKU and what meaningful work they are doing. It is so exciting to know I can have a small part in this project by having bought your beautiful hat (which everyone keeps complimenting), and I smiled hugely when I saw your picture here on the Krochet Kids website, you are a gorgeous and inspiring woman. I want you to know that I am a young artist, primarily a painter, and you have inspired me to make artwork that hopefully I can share with lots of people the way you do your crocheted hats. Thank you for making my wonderful beanie, and I would love to hear back from you if thats possible, I adore having pen pals in different places around the world!

Today I went shopping. I don't go shopping often, because I don't have the money.
I saw these hats, and although I didn't have a lot in my wallet, I had just enough to buy a rose colored hat.

I want to say thank's gorgeous. I wish there was more that I can do...I also support Invisible Children in the fight to stop Joseph Kony and his Lords Resistance Army of children. Everyday, I think about the Ugandan people and how strong you are.
One day I hope to go to Uganda to see and help as much as possible. So maybe I'll see you one day :)
Thank You,
