Although she had undergone all necessary training to hold a job in Northern Uganda, Nabinaka Patricia found it impossible to get a job. At the same time, her husband was not working, which meant that their entire family was going hungry. However, with the help of KK Uganda, Patricia is now able to feed, clothe, house, and educate her family. She looks forward to this new life of sustainable provision and the bright futures she can now promise her children.

“I dream of opening a business, building a home for my family and continuing to crochet long after I leave the program.”

“I enjoy watching films and singing, as well as spending time with friends.”

“Thank you for the work you have done in my life and please continue supporting vulnerable women and giving hope to the helpless.”

Hello Nabinaka, I just sent a thank you response to "Akot Jennifer "and now I'm sending you one (smile) ...I got a gift today which was (2) hats from KKU. I'm impress with the quality of work you woman do!!!! Although it may seem easy to crochet for you, it feels like far better quality than anything made from a machine. Getting products from KKU feels more satisfying than I expected ...thank you so very much again. The workmanship you ladies put into the products and how personal they are ,is what impressed me. Tell your family "Hi" and that you made another satisfied customer often and laugh every day
Many thanks

Thank you so much for the beautiful hat that you made. My passion that God has put on my heart is to help others in need and to love the unloved. I love organizations like Krochet Kids International that are willing to do the very same thing. Even though you may not have as many resources as I do you are still doing this very thing! You have a great skill and you poured your heart into this piece. It is the most beautiful thing I own and I plan on keeping it for the rest of my life. I am so happy that God has provided this amazing opportunity in your life. Glory to God! I would love to keep in touch with you.

Psalm 13:5
But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation.

Thank you so much for this amazing hat! I spent a month in Uganda, Africa when I was16. I got to see the people and help work in orphanages & teach aids prevention programs in the schools in Kampala and Gulu. Its such a blessing to see that you are being able to support you and your family through this organization. I know that through this hat I will be able to tell people about your story and encourage them to look into the organization and help support the cause. Your an amazing woman and talented beyond belief. I wish the best to you and your family! It's such a blessing to have this gift.

Thanks from the bottom of my heart!

We love you and your work!

Hey, Nabinaka!
My name is Taylor Tennille Stickney from a small town in Iowa called St. Ansgar. We don't have a lot to do here except make fun for ourselves, and watch TV which is how I found out about your organization! :-D And I am so glad I found it!
Thank you sooo much for the krochet hat! You did a wonderful job. I plan on buying more and I would be honored if you had happen to have made another for me :-) You see, this one I have purchased is for a friend of mine. It is her birthday and I knew she would appreciate organizations like this as much as I do! Her name is Christen Pink. She is a kind and caring person who only wants to have fun and help others. She is planning on being a music teacher as she attends Wartburg College in Iowa. What you are doing is a wonderful thing, and I can't thank you enough for putting your time and effort into this specific hat! A million thanks go from my friend and I to you! At least she will thank you when she gets her hat for her birthday :-P

Hi, Nabinaka Patricia,
I had been wanting a hat for so long from Krochet Kids because I knew it would help your people in Africa. My girlfriend surprised me with a black new beanie and I absolutely fell in love with it, not only because it looked amazing, but because I know part of the profit was going to helping people in need. Thank you so incredibly much for crocheting my beanie and I hope you and your family are living a wonderful life now that Krochet Kids has helped you. Follow your dreams. : )


October 7, 2011

I'm so glad it was you who crocheted this hat I purchased. I feel we are connected in the sense, that although we are trained for employment, circumstances diverted us to a different way of providing for ourselves and family. I feel as though you are my kindred spirit though we have never met!! Thank you for your talents, and may your life dream be fulfilled by hard work, faith, and God's spirit and sacrifice. :)

Hello Patricia! My name is Paige Carlson and I am from Huntington Beach, California USA. I am a single mom with a 19 year old Autistic son named Cory. I am not working now to be able to care for my son and all of his needs. He is now high functioning thanks to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! I bought my beautiful cream colored the Thomas hat at my church, Mariners Church in Irvine California, during a street fair at our Christmas tree lighting ceremony. I love the little braids that hang down on either side over each ear. My son always wants to wear it so I need to buy one more for him! I am so thankful to you for the amazing work you do. It is so wonderful to be able to see your face and read a little bit about you! You are such a beautiful woman with the most incredible smile. God bless you and your entire family. I pray God blesses you greatly and gives you the desires of your heart. I wish I could thank you in person and go to Africa but I am afraid I would be financially unable to do so. Again, Patricia, I am so thankful and grateful to you and hope your life continues to grow abundantly for you and your family. God loves you so very much!
Love Always, Paige Carlson
