Piloya Jennifer Faida

Jennifer witnessed a lot of atrocities during the war in Northern Uganda.  Five of her cousins were abducted by rebels and her family was eventually forced out of their home and into government camps where they lived off of handouts from the World Food Program. As a beneficiary for KKU, she is more self-reliant and is able to provide for her family like never before.

“My plan is to build a house for my children. I want­­­­ them to have a quality education, something I did not have.”

“The most beautiful thing about Northern Uganda is that the water is clean and, compared to other regions of the country, and there is a variety of food.”

“I am so grateful for the support and love that is being provided to me. Please continue with the spirit of support towards me and my family.”

Thank you so much for working hard, for providing for your kids, and for being an amazing person. Be blessed and prosper in all you do! Peace!

    Dear Jennifer,

    I cannot thank you enough for the beautiful headband you have created for my little sister. She is only 7 years old, but refuses to take your creation off her little head! She struts around the house with it like it is her tiara and she is the princess. I appreciate what you do very very much. I hope all is going well in Uganda! Thanks for everything.

    Much love,

    All the best to you and your family!

    A friend of mine received your hat from his wife for Christmas. I was there when he opened it. He loved it and kept it on his head. He thought it was so cool to see an actual name and signature on a tag in the hat. I wrote down the name so that I could write you myself. I just wanted to tell you that you did a beautiful job and to keep up the good work. I especially want you to know that I am praying for you. Merry Belated Christmas and take care. Aloha (from Hawai`i/USA), Kendra

    I wanted to thank you for making my hat. I love to wear it. All of my friends love it too. They ask me where I got it from and I tell them about this amazing company that helps women in other countries make a living. I tell them that each product has the name of the amazing woman that made the item. They all think that it is an amazing concept, that there is a company like this one.
    I love my hat and this company, I am looking to buy more items, I just can’t decide what I want. haha
    You and the other woman that work with this company are truly amazing.
    Thank you again! <3
