Alanyo Teddy

Alanyo Teddy was an orphan struggling to find food and shelter for herself and her siblings. Today, Teddy earns enough money through her work at KK Uganda to support herself and her siblings and also to send her younger siblings to school. Teddy has also started loaning money to others in the community in order to supplement her income with the interest that she collects through that.

“My dream is to go back to school and to start a business that will help me support myself after I leave the crochet program.”

“I am a sports lady and love to watch and play football.”

“I am so grateful for what KK intl. has done, especially in my life as an individual.”

    Thank you so much for making such the great hat. I received it as a gift from my niece. It will come in very handy as right now where I live, Omaha Nebraska,USA, we have 8 inches of snow and it is very cold. I too love to crochet but I have never done anything this nice. Thanks again and I’m proud to wear your hat.
    Thank You

    Teddy – I love hats but rarely buy them. They just never look right to me. But after spotting your sweet “Betty” hat and reading your story I just couldn’t resist. I popped it on my head and wandered around the store to find my friend and a woman stopped me to complement me on such a beautiful and well fitting hat! I proudly wear it now and love to show off your sweet signature. I wish you all the best.
    Thank you!

    i hope you get to go back to school one day and start that business to support your family and friends. and i also like that you play football.

    Dear Alanyo Teddy,

    I am headmaster at a Christian school in Arizona, USA. One of our students, Johnny Vogel, just presented me a bow tie that you made. I wear a bow tie every day at school so I was very pleased to receive this gift. More importantly, I was very happy to learn about Krochet Kids. Your bow tie is a wonderful addition to my collection. I shall wear my new tie with pride.

    May God bless you and your family.

    Thank you, Alanyo Teddy for your amazing work making the beanie I bought. It says the name is TODDLER and I get so many compliments when I wear it. I LOVE that I can say “THANKS! TEDDY MADE IT!” I do hope that one day I will have the opportunity to come to Uganda and meet you along with all the other ladies who work for Krochet Kids.

    May God bless you abundantly!

    Hi Alanyo Teddy,

    I LOVE my blue hat. It says it is a ZOOEY. I live in Austin, Texas USA. I met Kohl a few weeks ago and he inspires me. We are teaching women in COLOMBIA, South America how to knit baby clothes so that they can support their families, so I was very interested in Kohl’s program in Uganda.

    Keep up the good work! Best wishes to you and your family,
