Ogenrwot Brenda

After her mother’s death and years of mistreatment by her stepmother, Ogenrwot Brenda left her father’s home to be raised by her impoverished aunt. Although she was not able to attend school herself, Brenda is now using a portion of the money that she earns at KK Uganda to fund her niece’s education. She is also supporting herself and her family and hopes to use the money that she saves to fund her own education in the future.

“My future dream is to go back to school and study hard for a better future. I also would like to start up my own business that will help me with my education, especially when I phase out of the program.”

“To love means to care for someone at all times.”

“I enjoy braiding hair as an activity during my free time.”

“I would like to thank the founders and promoters of KK intl. for the great project In Northern Uganda and wish them all the best as they continue to support more women.”

Thank you so much for such a wonderful beanie! I live in the Pacific Northwest so I was looking for something cute, practical, and warm, and this definitely meets all of my criteria! I wish you all of the positive vibrations that I have that you're able to continue growing and thriving. Your work is amazing- you have such a talent! I will always come to Krochet Kids for the rest of my woven needs. Thank you again!

Thank you so much for the hat. Tt's amazing and I plan on buying many more. It's awesome to have a story connected to it and a face. So many things out there just don't have a personal connection; they're just items. But this is something different and special. I wish you all the best in the world. Thank you

I was attending a conference and saw the hat sitting on the sales table. The look and construction of it caught my eye and I knew I had to have it. When I found out the story behind the company and the goal of their organization I wanted the hat I bought and more. I want to thank you for a well constructed and beautiful hat. I live in the midwest (Michigan) and it is now early November so I will get alot of opportunities to show it off. Thank you and good luck. I pray educational plans go well and your niece does well.

Ogenrwot Brenda,

How awesome is it that God has used your life for His glory?! I appreciate the beautiful warm cap you made that I bought. It will most definitely keep me warm in the winter, but most importantly, the thought of you hand-knitting it will warm me most. God bless you, and I pray for your future to be secured with the education that you dream of.

Beautiful Brenda.
I went to return pantyhose at Nordstroms in America. On the counter was this fabulous black hat that you made sitting there waiting for me to buy. Someone had returned it minutes before I got there and I KNEW this hat was for me. Llittle did I know the meaning behind these KK hats nor it's impact on you and your village.
I LOVE my hat and everytime I wear it I will think of your amazing hands making this especially for me.
I LOVE Africa (Cameroon) and I plan to live there this summer.
My prayer is one day I can help the people of Cameroon just like KK International is helping you beautiful, smart, intelligent, caring, wise women in Uganda.
God bless you beyond what you could think or ask and to bless your family and your village!

Dear Brenda:
Thank you so much for making such a beautiful Betty hat. My seven year old daughter and I took turns wearing it while out shopping today and we have already received a number of compliments on it! Please draw strength from the fact that two ladies all the way over here in Oregon (United States) are thinking of you today. You are such an inspiration!
