Krochet Kids

Found an amazing initiative today that I can’t believe I didn’t know existed! Krochet Kids international is a non-profit started by three college guys who loved to crochet (guys! crocheting!).

Over 100 people go to their compound in Northern Uganda everyday to work crocheting hats (and other projects) sold around the world. The collaboration of the staff in America and artists in Northern Uganda has created a sustainable cycle of employment and empowerment. The goal is “to create sustainable economic development programs that support holistic growth of individuals and communities within developing nations.”

LOVE IT!
