During the war, Lamunu Faith was separated from her family and found herself far from home. She made it safely back to Gulu where we met her. Working at KNOWN SUPPLY has enabled Faith to support herself and her child through school, as well as meet all their needs. She hopes to complete her schooling and start a small business with the money that she saves through the crochet program.

DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE
“After I finish my schooling, I hope to start a small business that will help me send my child to school through the highest level.”

INTERESTS & HOBBIES
“I enjoy caring for animals and have already bought a few farm animals with the money that I’ve earned through crochet.”

MESSAGE TO KNOWN SUPPLY
“Thank you for all you have done. Because of this opportunity, I am able to give my child the life that I was deprived when I was young.”

Today, I received an ornament that you made. I participated in a Secret Santa exchange online and a total stranger sent me the ornament. I love to crochet and I even teach crochet to anyone who will ask for help. The ornament is beautiful! It is red and green striped and looks like a bell shape. I had my daughter put it on the tree for me and I will show her this website so that she can see what good came from this. I am so proud of you for doing something to make your life better. Keep up the excellent work. Thank you again!

I cannot thank you enough for this beautiful headband you made. I saw it, walked by it, turned around and had to purchase it because it stuck out so much to me. I wear it proudly and you should be proud of the things you have accomplished in this wonderful thing we call life. You are such a talented woman, as many supporters have already stated, but your hard work is definitely paying off because with each item you create, you are that much closer to your goals and dreams. I wish you and your son the best in the future. You will be in my thoughts and prayers! Thank you for touching my heart!
