Happy Kids Would Love YOUR Help!

Happy Kids Would Love YOUR Help!

As some of you may know, my time in Uganda is coming to a close. My last day is December 14th, which is only a few short weeks away. I will reflect and share my entire experience in depth  when it’s/I’m ready, but for now there is one last thing I’d like to accomplish before leaving this country and these beautiful people.

Our ladies at Krochet Kids are amazing. They work unbelievably hard to provide for their families each and every day. Those of you who have been following my experience have obviously gathered that their children have found a special place in my heart. Alvin, Melissa, Demily, Arthur, Emmi, Abraham, Subra, Jovia, baby Blessing, Ruth, Gabriela (who is still scared/unsure of my arm hair haha), baby Matthew, and the newest member of the crew, baby Patrick :). The list of kiddies goes on and on and I am excited because these little friends are the future leaders and difference makers of Uganda, thanks to the example set by their wonderful mothers.

Fortunately, there is a place for all these little cuties to go while their mama’s work. That place is a school called Happy Kids, which is ran by one of our Krochet Kids graduates, Lamunu Kevin.

Earlier this year, Kevin approached me about two improvements she envisioned for the school. Her first improvement was the construction of a proper latrine. With the help of my friends, we were able to build that latrine earlier this year. And let me tell you, that latrine has been put to good use (insert plugged nose emoji haha).

The second improvement is a playground.

Our goal is to see the construction of this playground come to life before I leave. This playground would include a swing-set, a merry go round, a see-saw, and a slide. Unfortunately, I can’t do it by myself, so Kevin and I are kindly requesting help from you :).

Cost Breakdown 
Merry Go Round= $290
See-Saw= $150
Slide= $150
Swing-Set= $200
Labor/Transport/Construction Prep= $110

If we can raise $900 by December 10th, the playground will be built just in time for when the kids come back from holiday break. Wouldn’t that be such a pleasant
surprise for our little friends?

It would be an unbelievable departing gift from all of you who have been so supportive of my experience, and would make the kids and their mothers sooo happy.

Dominic, Krochet Kid’s country director, and one of the best humans I have ever met, will oversee the construction of the playground and keep us updated on the progress.

So with all that being said, please like, share, donate, do whatever you feel in your heart that could make a difference.


Love you guys and thanks for all your love and support.
