When she was young, Ayerwot Christine attempted to start her own business with a loan given to her by her aunt. However, because she was without the necessary skills to run a business, it collapsed. Through the savings and loans program at KK Uganda, Christine is learning to budget the money that she earns as a crocheter so that her next business endeavor will be successful.

DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE
“I hope to start my own business so that I am able to support myself even after I leave the program.”

LOVE DEFINED
“Loving others means to live in unity with them, without conflict.”

MESSAGE TO KK intl.
“I am so grateful for this opportunity and pray that God would bless the supporters of KK intl. so that they may continue to help other vulnerable women.”

Thank you so much for the beautiful job you did making my new hat. It is so soft and cozy and perfect for chilly mornings and evenings on the beach here in San Diego. When someone asks me where I got it I can say Ayerwot Christina from Uganda made it.

Ms. Christine,
I am so glad that I am able to thank the wonderful soul who makes such beautiful items. The amount of love you put into your efforts is something no one can compete with. I wear your hat every day that I can, even if it scalding hot outside. Not only does it look exquisite but it fits and feels so comfortably. I almost feel like part of me is missing when I accidentally leave it at home. You're very talented and I know that whatever you pursue in your life can be achieved. I only wish the entire world knows of your grace and kindness. Once again, from the depth of my heart, thank you so very much.
-Sincerely,

Thank you so much for the scarf, Christine! As soon as I picked up this scarf and found out that it was hand-made by you, I fell in love with it. A couple years ago, I lived in Kampala for 6-months as I was working with Watoto Church and I even got to visit Gulu for a couple of days during my time there! I also have a sponsor child who lives in a Watoto village near Kampala, so I'm sure you can imagine how special this scarf is to me! Now, every time I put on my scarf I think of you, my sponsor child, Joy, and my other friends in Uganda and I say a prayer for all of you. I know that God is going to bless you in your new business endeavours!

Much Love,
Charity

Thank you so, so much for the miraculously beautiful hat! I wear it everyday (I'm not sure what exactly it was called, because I got it as a present; so I just put it as donation). Everyone says they adore my hat and think its amazing. They usually ask me if I made it... And I say: "no, a women more talented, more gifted and more beautiful than me made it!" Also thank you so much for putting all your hard work into it! I wish you the best and encourage you to work to your dream, it will happen! May God bless you and keep you safe.

Best of luck and remember to keep on smiling cause smiles lead you miles (and so does God :D),

Dear Christine,
I just received my hat that you made in the mail! I was so excited that I ran into my house and ripped open the package. Where I live it gets REALLY cold in the winter and we have a lot of snow...so your hat is perfect for me and will do a great job of keeping me warm! Plus, whenever I see my hat, I will now think of where it came from, the people of Uganda, and YOU! It will be a great reminder for me to keep you in my prayers. And when people ask me about my hat and where I got it (because it looks so GREAT!), I will be able to tell them your story and about your people in Uganda. :)

Thank you for my beautiful hat! Know that you are in my prayers...God bless,
Bethany <3

Dear Chrsitine,
You crocheted the beautiful hat I received as my birthday present. From your hands in Uganda to the top of my head in Michigan, wow, this hat has made a journey! I appreciate your wonderful crochet skills and am very impressed by the quality of your work. Since you made this hat with your own hands, it is not "my" hat but rather "our" hat. I will think of you and pray for you each time I wear it.

Peace and Love to you and your family,
Stephanie

Thank you so much making my new touque. I fell in love with it the moment I bought the touque online. Just knowing it was handmade from you and that you across the world from me. Made me appreciate this touque even more. Seeing your name inside my new touque is like the cherry on top. This touque haves sentimental value to me now I feel like we are connected from just this one hat. When my friends ask where I got it I'll make sure I'll tell them where, and about Ayerwot's dream to own her own business.

To all you dream to come true,
Brian Ridings.
