Ocwee Grace dropped out of school when she was young in order to help her family around the house, but married young in an attempt to get out of that life. However, this marriage was short-lived and she was left to raise her two children alone. Since coming to KK Uganda, Grace has earned the money she needs to feed, clothe, house and care for her children and looks forward to sending her children to school as they get older.

Dear Ocwee Grace, This past weekend I purchased a hat that you made. It has been raining constantly where I live, and I was so happy to find something that would cover my frizzy damp hair, but also look nice and be lightweight. The hat is lovely and showcases your talent. I thank you for the work you do. God bless as you continue to work toward your goals. - Rachael from Pennsylvania

Dear Ocwee Grace,
I am so excited to write to you that I purchased a hat you made! I love it so much. I live in a Kansas, USA where it gets cold in the winter. Your hat is super warm. I love the red color you chose. I wear it everywhere! My job is working with international students who come to the US to study. I meet them and try my best to make them feel comfortable and welcome while they stay here in my city. I love my job because I get to meet the world right here in my home. They always bless me. I hope I can bless them. Please tell me your story and how I can pray for you. I would love to hear about Uganda too.
Looking forward to your reply!

Hello Ocwee Grace!
I just bought a bow tie that was crocheted by you today... It immediately caught my attention by how beautifully it was made; most importantly, it is special because it was made by someone with a mission and a dream to make a better future for her children... As I wear my tie, I will think of you and pray that you may reach you hopes and dreams and I will tell your story and encourage others to support Krochetkids.org.

Hi Ocwee Grace,
My name is Michelle Morgan. Sean gave me a crochet beanie for Christmas just now. Apparently, you are the one who made it. It is beautiful. You did a lovely job. I adore it. Thank you so much for doing such a fantastic job. I wish you well and pray the Lord is with you. Every time I look at the tag on my beanie and see your name, I will say a prayer for you. Kelsey, who works over at Purse of Hope, is my step-daughter. She told me about you. Take care of yourself and keep up the fabulous crocheting.
