Once upon a time ago, three high school friends learned to krochet custom-made beanies to afford a hot-air balloon ride for their prom dates. A few years and some life-experience later, they used their talent to create a business to help fight the cycle of poverty in the developing world.
Krochet Kids employs women in Uganda and Peru, teaching them how to krochet, and ensuring they are paid more than fair wages. Every product is hand-signed by the person who made it. Krochet Kids encourages you to visit the profile of the woman who made your KKi product, so you can learn her story and how she is being empowered. Write a note of thanks and encouragement to let her know you are rooting her on! Meet the ladies on Krochet Kid's website here.
