Zainabu lost her father when she was very young so she was sent away to live with her aunt in hopes that she would receive an education. Unfortunately, Zainabu dropped out of school in order to keep up with the heavy work loads that she was responsible for. Zainabu says that KK Uganda has united her family. She feels that she has good companions that makes her happy and makes her forget her worries.

“I now plan to continue saving in order to buy a piece of land and build.”

“I love cooking and visiting relatives.”

“The prevailing peace and great weather in the northern region is the most beautiful thing.”

I could not thank you enough! Not only is it stylish but it is sure to become an invaluable asset this coming winter season! The part of the world I call home gets quite frigid beginning this time of year but I need not worry about my ears catching cold thanks to you! Your hat will be such a blessing to me! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! :-) And my ears will thank you soon enough! God Bless You Zainabu Juma! It Is such an honor to have the available opportunity to give to and support a cause such as yours! I greatly admire the strength and courage you have to stand up and provide for your family! I promise that it will not go unrewarded! Know Zainabu Juma that God has a plan and a purpose for your life and it is not one of defeat or failure! No! You are meant to succeed and concur!! Know that Jesus will never leave you or forsake you! He loves you more than you can ever imagine and will always be there to help you and guide you no matter the size or severity of the problem or obstacle you are facing! Cast all your cares and worries onto him and follow him. He will open the door to every desire of your heart. :-) I promise! And that includes pursuing and inquiring whatever education it is you yearn for! With God Everything Is Possible! Again God Bless You Zainabu Juma and Thank You!!
