Lanyero Grace Krochet Kids Uganda

Lanyero Grace spent her life believing that her brother or a husband would be her savior. However, when her brother encouraged her to marry young in order to escape poverty and she was left by both her first and second husbands to care for their six children, Grace realized that only she could change her life. Since becoming a beneficiary for KKU, Grace has been enabled to support her children and send them to school. She believes that the unity she has with the other women at the compound has given her a greater understanding of joy and opportunity and looks forward to a bright future for herself and her family.

“With the many people around me, I feel my sorrows, pain and burden all being reduced and I hope for a very bright future for myself and my children.”

“Love is living in unity with and doing well to one another.”

“I am really so grateful for what KKU and its promoters have done for my life and pray that they should continue to be a savior to the needy women of Uganda and that God may richly bless them.”

    Dear Grace,
    I just wanted to thank you for the hat that you made! I heard of KKI years ago and always wanted one but this past Christmas was my first one. I absolutely love it, it is gray and I wear it with pretty much everything:) I have gotten many compliments and it opens up where I can tell them about you. I travelled to Jinja, Uganda last year and fell in love with the people there! I will be praying for you and your children. I am encouraged by your story and how you have more joy and an understanding of love. God is great!
    Thank you again, love sarah.

    I love the hat that you crafted for me. Your story is truly inspiring. I am so happy that you have found the strength as an independent woman to raise your children and thrive. You are so beautiful and I hope you receive every possible joy in the future to come. Thank you.

    Dear Grace,
    I just received a pink lincoln from my brother’s wife for Christmas! I love it so much! I can tell you have been crocheting for a while. I love to crochet, too! My sister taught me two years ago and since then I have made many scarves that I have given as gifts to my friends and families. When something is crocheted and hand-made, it is very special because you know that the person who made it spent a lot of time and energy on it. It is made with love. This pink bow headband is the most special gift I received this Christmas because it was made by you, and I know you are working so hard to provide for your family. YI pray that God will bless your work and your family, each of your six children. Thank you so much for this lovely gift!

    Grace –
    My daughter-in-law gave me a beautiful scarf (“the Quinn”). It has your name on the label as the person who made it. I wanted to send you this note to let you know I greatly appreciate this scarf. To know the honorable contribution you have made with your skillful, gracious talents to Krochet Kids intl. makes this scarf even more precious to me.
    I pray for peace in Northern Uganda and peace and blessings to you and your family.
    Thank you again.

    I have never been one to wear hats! Not even in this cold Chicago weather. But after I learned about Krochet Kids and even did a presentation about the organization at school I had to purchase a hat myself. I purchaced “The Betty” and I must say I look quite good in it! I receive tons of compliments and I tell everyone about how my purchase helps. Thank you for your wonderful work of art that you have created! Wishing you lots of success and Gods Blessings.
    Thanks Again!
