“Each day, a group of women in Northern Uganda gather in a simple brick hut to begin work. Their tools are small, just a hook and some yarn, yet the end product is something much more meaningful than a style accessory. The crocheted products these women are making have a far reaching impact. They provide immediate stability for their families, share about the realities of poverty, and their sale promotes the development of their community.
The Krochet Program was born out of our love for crocheting and our desire to make a difference. Currently, there are ten Ugandan women who are crocheting hats and enjoying a newfound livelihood. This new opportunity is supplemented with other educational training to help them sustain and provide for their families both now and in the years to come.”
