Akech Santa

As a young girl, Akech Santa was told that women were only meant for motherhood or prostitution and was thus deprived of hope, opportunity and education. Today, Santa is proving the naysayers wrong by supporting herself through her work as a crocheter. She is also using the money to support her children and hopes to use the money she earns to educate them through university.

“My future dream is to see my children through all levels of school so that they might have bright, successful futures. I would also like to start my own textiles business so that I can continue to have reliable work after I leave the program.”

“Love comes from within. It cannot be forced and it certainly cannot be bought.”

“Thank you to KKU and its supporters for the work that they have done in my life. May God bless you abundantly.”

    Thank you for the beautiful hat you made for my daughter! She absolutely loves it and models it around the house all the time. I hope you and your children have a wonderful life and that all of your dreams become your reality. You are an incredible woman and if we had more kind and loving people like you in the world, there would be nothing known but love in this world. Thank you!

    Dear Akech,

    My best friend since kindergarten sent me “the Agatha” hat you made for my 21st birthday. We don’t live in the same place anymore so it was a wonderful surprise to get a gift in the mail from her that means so much to you and me. The work you’re doing for yourself and your children is amazing, and I can only hope to be half as inspiring as you are as I continue to grow.

    I will always remember your quote about love when I am struggling to find if it is real or not; love cannot be forced.
    I wish you and your children the best of luck and can’t wait to purchase more products from you for the ones I love!

    Love, Kelsey

  7. Cocoa Losito

    Thank you for my beautiful pink hat! I’m a young single mother. I was raised that women are only meant for serving men, having children and “toys” for men. I broke free of an abusive relationship a few years ago and am working on making a new “healthy” life for my son and I. I’m getting counseling, other help and tools to help us have a brighter future. I never got much education and I want my son to get the schooling he deserves. Someday I hope to go back to school as well. We maybe from different parts of this Earth but our stories are similar. We’re not alone. Keep up the great work and stay strong.

    Love, Cocoa.

    Dear Akech,

    Thank you for the beautiful crocheted eyeglass case. I keep it in my purse where it protects my magnifying glasses so that I can see up close. The case will remind me daily of your inspiring story and help me to see greater beauty in our world where we are all connected.

    Thoughts & Prayers,

    Dear Santa,
    thank you for the beautiful crochet hat. It fits so nice and looks great on. You made it in my favourite colour, purple and I love the little flower which gives it a feminine touch. It doesn’t typically get too cold here in Victoria on the west coast of British Columbia, Canada but cold enough to enjoy wearing hats throughout the winter months.
    Wishing you and your children good health and success. God bless all of you.
