Owilli Dorine

The abduction of Owilli Doreen’s brother during the war was so traumatic that it left her family unable to continue on in the way that they were accustomed to. Working as a hut leader for KK Uganda has given Doreen the opportunity to provide her family with the finances and hope necessary to rebuild. She hopes to see her youngest siblings through school with the money she earns through the program.

“I dream of sending my younger siblings and children to school so that they can have the best education and have bright futures.”

“To love someone is to forgive them when they do something bad to you.”

“You have done a truly great thing here in Northern Uganda. Thank you for all you do.”

Did they make your product?

Dear Dorine,
Thank you for the beautiful hat (teal color) you made that my sister gave to me. My sister, Brenda K., who is there in Uganda has shared how sweet you are and how you were like her Mama while she was there with you. I pray that you can fulfill your dream of your younger siblings being educated. Our Lord Jesus will see you through..He is so good to us. I am blessed that I get to know you and get to remember your smiling face as I wear the hat. I believe and trust your smile is from the knowledge of Jesus Christ and His love for you as I see you put a cross on the hat tag and you are wearing a cross in the picture. Love, joy, and peace are yours with Jesus, and these are gifts that can never be taken away. :)
With love,
Lisa K.

Hello Dorine!
My boyfriend gave me your lap top cover in the "Cappucino" color for Christmas. I absolutely love it and always get so many compliments on it! It is easy to see it was made with love and great care. Thank you so much for my wonderful lap top case, I will now think of you whenever I use it!
Gratefully yours,

I just got one of your laptop cases for Christmas. I love it - it fits my laptop perfectly and the color is one of my favorites. It's really special to be able to see your beautiful face and to thank you personally. I admire you for working to support your younger siblings and to help them to get an education. I work at a school (I am a counselor) and I know how important an education is. Your younger brothers and sisters are very blessed to have a sister like you.
Thank you for the laptop case. You do beautiful work.
God bless you and your family,

Michele Cole

Owilli Dorine, thank you so much for making such beautiful hand-made gifts! I loved the twin fin hat and I really wanted to help a friend of mine with this cause. Another big reason that I chose your hat especially is because of the cross you drew on the tag with your name. It just makes it that much MORE special to me! (:
