Lamaro Rose

Lamaro Rose Krochet Kids Uganda

Rose and her six siblings were raised by their loving grandmother after losing their Mother at a young age. To help support the family, she and her brothers had to dropout of school to farm neighbors’ garden for very little pay. Sadly, Rose was abducted at the age of 13 by the LRA. She was in captivity for a whole year and experienced unthinkable things. At one point she sustained a bullet wound during a fight between the government soldiers and the rebels. Fortunately, Rose escaped and things have turned around for her. Since entering the KKU program, she has been providing meals for her family and for the first time in a while, she can think about planning for her future.

“I dream of buying a piece of land for my children. I also want to pay for my children to attend higher levels of education so they can have a brighter future.”

“Love means staying in harmony with one another and being with them during both the good and bad times.”

“I am filled with so much thanks and appreciation for the goodness you have done to the women of Northern Uganda. Blessings to you and your families.”

    Lamaro Rose,

    Thank you so much for my beautiful hat. It was given to me as a Christmas gift and I have to admit I didn’t know the value of it immediately. While I recognized the beauty of the hat, I had no idea the love and story behind it. Thank you for all that you do and for the hope that you have. You have such an inspiring story and I pray you are able to provide for your children all that you dream. I am so honored to wear this hat that you made and will pray for you each time I wear it. What a neat way to share your story with people around the world. Thank you again and I pray God’s blessings upon you and your family!
