Atayo Dina

As a mother with 10 children and little education, Dina’s hope to financially support all of her children had been drained. She had tried earning a living by selling maize and washing clothes, but never earned enough to send all of her children to school. Since being involved with the program, her hope has been restored as she is now able to pay her children’s school fees and stock the house with food on a daily basis.

“I plan to start large scale farming in my land and also open up a lockup shop.”

“During my leisure time, I enjoy chatting with my friends.”

“The most beautiful thing about Northern Uganda is the fertility of the land.”

“Love means doing well to one another.”

    Dear Atayo,
    My husband got me one of the scarves you made and I love it! It is one of the best gifts I have ever gotten. You have a truly remarkable gift to knit and to create beauty. After reading your story it sounds like you make not only beautiful creations with your hands but also with your heart. I imagine you are passing all that beauty down through your children! You are truly changing the world with your ingenuity and creativity. Keep doing all you do :)

    Dear Atayo Dina,

    Thank you so much for knitting this beautiful black winter hat. You are very talented. I live in New York and we get a lot of snow here! This cozy hat will keep my head warm for years to come. It was a birthday gift to me from my younger brother. Whenever I wear it I will think of my brother and you and your family and send you all positive thoughts. Much love to you and your children from snowy New York!

    Atayo Dina,
    Thank you so much for my beautiful silver beanie. I found it in a shop in Seattle and it will be my hat for the winter! I love it so much, it is so warm and cute and I love the color because it will match everything. I had no idea these products were made by women in Uganda until the man in the store told me about it. Once I visited the website and looked you up I knew this hat was meant to find me. You are an amazing woman. It means so much to me that I was able to buy this hat from you and support your family and economy. Please keep making beautiful hats for all the cold girls in Seattle!

    Atayo Dina I received a hat you made from my grandmother for Christmas. The hat is beautiful. Your work is flawless. I am so happy you have been given the opportunity to make a steady income to support your children by learning a skill I personally could not. Education is very important in one’s life and I’m glad you are able to send all of your children to school. The work you do is outstanding and I only hope I can achieve something as wonderful as you have with your life. I wish you all the best and for you and your children to live a long wonderful life.
