Adong Janet

As a child, Adong Janet and her sister were forced to take care of all household chores as their stepmother was unwilling to do so. Although she married young to escape this life, she and her husband often struggled to earn enough money to support themselves and their family, which nearly led to their separation. Today, Janet is able to help her husband support their family and is saving money that she hopes to use to send her children to school.

“I dream of starting my own business so that I can make enough money to send my children to school through university.”

“The people of Northern Uganda are forgiving and warm, which makes it a pleasant place to live.”

“I am so grateful for all that you’ve done for me and I pray that more countries will hope to buy our hats so that we can make more and sell more and you can help more needy women.”

    I was visiting Hawaii from Canada and saw your toque in a store, although everyone thought I was a bit ridiculous coming to some place hot and buying a toque, after hearing your story I couldn’t walk away without buying one. I am a teacher and truly believe that every child should have an opportunity to go to school. I hope that more people will support this cause and you will be able to send your children to University. Continue the great work, thanks again!!!

I am so happy that you are able to support your family. Thank you so much again for my hat and I will definitely purchase more hats from Krochet Kids so that I can support more wonderful people.
    All the best,
