Lamaro Faith’s father died when she was very young, leaving her with no choice but to begin work as a child to help her mother support the family. She married when she was 17 in hopes of finding salvation from her desperation, but she immediately was forced to be the breadwinner for her home and lost her first child, which send her into a deep depression. Working at KK Uganda has allowed Faith the opportunity to bond and recover with other women and also to support herself and her aging mother.

DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE
“I hope to go back to school soon and then to buy land and start my own business in the future.”

FAVORITE THING ABOUT NORTHERN UGANDA
“The most beautiful thing about Northern Uganda is the prevailing peace.”

MESSAGE TO KK intl. 
“I am so grateful for what they have done for my life. I pray that they should continue with the spirit and that God may bless them.”

Thank you Faith!! My hat could not have come at a better time. I looked all over for this style of hat and could not find one anywhere until I was surfing the web and came across Krochet Kids intl. When I received my hat I knew it was knitted, but I did not know it was that personable. Your autograph made my hat officially authentic. I look forward to purchasing more apparel from you guys. Thanks again and keep up the good work, Faith. Can't wait to read about your new business. With some misfortunes that have come into your life I know you now have the will to be the best you want to be.
