Due to her father’s untimely abduction and death in the war, Nighty was raised primarily by her cousin. She was forced into hard labor, much of which was far too difficult for such a young woman and was never able to attend school. Whereas before Nighty was only able to work for a single day’s bread, the secure income that KK Uganda provides allows for her to save her money and plan her activities. This will allow her to provide an enjoyable childhood for her children, which she was never able to have herself.

“My dream is to pay for my children’s education.”

“Cooking is my most enjoyable activity.”

“KK intl. and promoters should continue to market their product and continue the program to help women similar situations.”

Did they make your product?

Dear Lakot Nighty,
I am a college student at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. Today I got an email telling me that I had received a package. My package was sent from home which is 8 hours away in Ohio and was from my parents. Inside was a letter, some snacks, and a hat that you made. I was so excited to read about the woman that made this hat that i now get to wear. When I read your story I got all teared up because my parents are working extremely hard to pay for my education, which is also what your dream is. My parents are the most amazing people on this planet, and I am sure one day your children will say the same. Thank you so much for my hat, I love it.

Thank you so much for making such a beautiful hat for my friend, Kalley. She had been looking for a hat for a long time, and couldn't find one that she liked. I saw this beautiful black piece with elegant white stripes on it at a little store, and it was perfect. When I gave it to her, she got so happy. When we traveled into cold weather to compete for our ice skating competition, she wore it the entire trip. Thank you. It's beautiful. I wish you the best for you and your family.

Dear Lakot Nighty,

Thank you for making such a beautiful scarf! I can see the hard work you put into making it, and I appreciate it very much. It is keeping me nice and warm here in Canada, as we are experiencing a much colder than usual winter this year. Best wishes to you and your children.

Hello Lakot!
I just purchased one of the Agatha hats! I love it! It's lightweight, but yet will keep me warm during the winter. I am from Bismarck, North Dakota and we already have snow on the ground! We will be having much more snow and our winters get very cold.
I am also going to wear this hat on vacation to Seattle, Washington. It's stylish and I cannot wait to show it to my friends in Seattle.
I hope that you are able to provide an education for your children. Keep up the good work!
Thank you so much!

Sending you love and good wishes! Keep it up :)

Lakot Nighty,

I had just walked in my door from the cold autumn day, and saw a package siting and waiting for me. I opened it, and in it contained the beautiful hat that you had made. Thank you for making this beautiful hat. My friends and I live in New York City. It gets very cold in the winter, so the hat will be of great use, and warmth! The holiday season is approaching, I look forward to supporting Krochet Kids intl. again soon. I wish you all the best!

Thank you again!

Thank you for your hard work and the care you put into your job. May you continue to be blessed as your dreams come true and you get to watch your children enjoy a better life. There is nothing more wonderful than to know your children will be OK. Thank you again and again!

Dear Nighty,

I love the taupe Betty hat that you knitted! Long story, but it was a gift for a friend, and I ended up keeping it. I live in northern California where it does get cold in the winter months. Our family has a dog and I wear the hat on early morning walks with him and stay so warm now. Your work is just beautiful; the stitching is ever so carefully spaced. Thank you for blessing me with your talent! I will pray for you that your dream to pay for your children's education becomes a reality. God is good, so trust in Him with your whole heart.

Blessings to you and your family,

Thank you Lakot Nighty!
I live in the United States in the state of Colorado. This morning on my way to work I purchased a nice crochet hat you made from a grocery store. I was happy to find it because it is winter here and my head was very cold. Now I am prepared for the cold weather. I will spread the word about the Krochet Kids International organization in hopes that communities will continue to thrive.

Wishing you and your family heath and prosperity.

Aloha and howzit from the beautiful island of O'ahu in the American state of Hawai'i! I was going to pick a grey hat, but ended up choosing a fuchsia colored one instead. I looked inside and found your name. I will enjoy wearing your wonderfully made hat. Knowing who made it and how it came to be, I truly think, makes it more meaningful. The world is such a big place and I'm sorry for all the troubles you have been made to face in your life. I hope KKi is doing right by you and you are really able to make a better life for yourself and for your children. I learned just yesterday about the concept of living Lomi. Lomi means to live and do with unconditional love and spirit. I hope that I can honor you and your spirit through my life and my actions. The fruits of your labor have reached across the globe and one piece of that fruit found is way to me. We are now a part of each other, but we always were, weren't we? Live, life, one love to you. Aloha means hello and goodbye, so from me to you, A L O H A.


November 27, 2012

Dear Lakot,

I wanted to thank you so much for creating such a wonderfully beautiful hat that I now have the priveledge of being able to wear. I saw it on the table in the store and loved it immediately. Then I heard the story of how you personally created it and I am honored to be wearing this hat made by your hands! Along with my gratitude, I am sending many blessings and am sending positive thoughts to the Universe that you get your wish of paying for your children's education.

Sending many best wishes your way,


November 27, 2012

Jambo! I am so grateful for the hat that you made for me. I live in the USA, in a state called Iowa, where it is very very cold in the winter. I have been to Uganda before and I am so happy that I can help you raise money to put your children through school, for education is the most important thing. Please keep up the good work, this hat is beautiful. Also remember that what you are doing is a wonderful thing for you, your family, and your community. Thanks again and much love!
