Adong Prossy

After being severely burned in an accident as a child, Adong Prossy suffered from physical and emotional distress throughout her childhood. Prossy escapes her pain through crocheting and the fellowship she has with the other women at the KK Uganda compound. She enjoys teaching her children how to read and write, and hopes to use the money she earns through crocheting to provide them with a good education.

“I hope to send my children to the best schools so that they can have the education that I was unable to receive.”

“Loving others means caring and providing for them in a way that does not hurt anyone else.”

“Thank you for the work you have done for the vulnerable women of Uganda. Because of your gift, our children are now living happy childhoods and getting good educations.”

  37. Sydney Dowben

    I don’t know what the name is for the item you made for me, but it is a very fashionable headband that fits perfectly. I know that you can provide your children with the education they deserve and more because if you really want something and are willing to work even harder for your dollar than you ever did before then you will make it. When the people around you, even world wide, know that you will stop at nothing everyone respects that goal. Right now I feel like I owe you a magical gift and I am willing to give you something that I made. I usually don’t do that or feel that when I buy a dress or something else at a retail store. It feels special to know who made my item and they’re background. Although you don’t know mine I already feel like we’re friends, ya know? Well have a great day and good luck friend.

  38. Mimi Tran

    Thank you so much Prossy! I wear the hat every time I walk to school and it keeps me nice and warm. I wish you the best and hope you are one step closer to your dreams.

    Much love from Vegas! <3
