Throughout her life, Doreen has witnessed much turmoil. She lost many family members during the war, and while she enjoyed school, she ultimately had to drop out due to lack of funds for school fees. KNOWN SUPPLY has given Doreen the opportunity to save money to ensure that her children gain an education, as well as give them better healthcare and healthy food.

“My future dream is to have a better life by working hard to send my children to school. I also dream to own my own land someday.”

“My favorite activity is cooking food.”

“Love means loving your neighbor the way you love yourself.”

“I want to thank the KNOWN SUPPLY supporters for the efforts they are putting forth to eradicate poverty through this life changing program.”

Hi Lakareber,

My roommate gave me this hat he received. He's not one for hats. He have it to me. I'm very picky about how these fit. When I put it on, I immediately loved it. I saw your name inside and realized that the tag was a way for me to thank you for your work. Thank you, so much, for making this hat. It is a black hat with sepia or brown-ish stripes. I love it. I'm wearing it out tonight. Thank you, again! You do great work!

At first I recieved my Hat and did not think a thing of it other then oh hey look a very nice hat. The hat is comfortable, stylish, and perfect for me. One day I decided to look inside for some reason and saw that a hand written name was on the tag. I was so intrigued. I knew someone made this hat personally, but never thought I could connect with the person who actually made it. I did not know her story, her struggles, and what she has to go through to make this hat for me. I hope you do have a chance to read this as I want to thank you so much. I pray for your family and for all people to have a better life. I know I can't make much change as I am a single person but if I can spread the word that's the greatest thing I can do for you and people
Like you. Please take to heart this scripture in the Bible that I love which shows us that one day there will be a hope for a new better life. Psalms 9:18; Isaiah 65:21,22

My eight year old daughter thinks it is the sweetest hat. I hope that you are doing well and have managed to achieve the goals you have given yourself and children. May you be blessed, safe and prosperous. Thank you for your handcrafted art that can be shared with my family.

Dear Doreen,

I ADORE my cream Thomas hat, I've never loved a hat so much! The stitching is perfect and the hat is gorgeous, you are incredibly talented. When I read the information about you I began to tear-up, knowing that by loving this beautiful hat I have, in a very small way, helped to send your children to school and to build a better life for you and your family. KKi is a wonderful program and I am excited to tell others about it!

Thanks again and I wish you and your family the very best!

I received a beautiful tan, blue and mauve crocheted hat for Christmas from my daughter. I crochet and knit as well and it is nice to recieve something made by another person's hand. I live in the middle of the United States in Kansas where it is quite cold right now. My hat will keep me warm when I feed the chickens. Even though I don't know you, I will still think of you and see your pretty face in my head everytime I wear it. All my best wishes for your success!

Hello Doreen,

Today I bought The Sunny sunglasses pouch at a retail store and I had no idea that it was handcrafted by you until I looked and read the tags just now. I was debating on this one you made and another one, but I am so glad that I picked this one. Not only is it beautiful, but I got to learn about you and the hardships you have went through. I am sending good thoughts and karma your way for you and your children and I thank you so much for the beautiful sunglasses pouch you made. I am going to go back to the store tomorrow and I'm going to buy more for gifts and I'm going to spread the word about this organization! Thank you so much again and I hope you and your children have a beautiful life and achieve all of your dreams and desires. Your friend, Alyssa

I wish nothing but the best for you and your children. I have been telling all of my friends to buy hats from KKi to help more women like you who strive to make their lives and the lives of their families better. I pray for peace in your country and I pray that you and your family are safe and happy.

God Bless you.
