Sunday's Charitable Purchase: Krochet Kids

buy a hat. change a life.


Krochet Kids train women in Northern Uganda to crochet and make these fabulous items which include hats, scarves, and laptop cases! They also mentor these women so that they may rise above and become empowered. All items are signed by the woman who made it, you can go to the website to read her personal story. Krochet Kids was started by a group of friends who learned how to crochet in high school and decided to start up again for a great cause.


The name Krochet Kids came from their high school nickname, they used to make their own head ware and eventually started taking custom orders from classmates.

If you're looking for a great handmade item for this winter, look no further than Krochet Kids.
