Empowerment is the reason why we exist. Our products, our partners, and our community work in unison to help people break the cycle of poverty, forever. We provide life-changing job opportunities to women in need. With each purchase you make, we introduce you to the woman who made your product and invite you to visit her online profile to see the impact you are having.
Krochet Kids Intl. is truly a global operation, with operations in Lima, Peru and Gulu, Uganda, where a wide variety of items are made for women, men, and children. Each day, women come to our local facilities to work, participate in trainings, and meet with their mentors. We also partner with other local organizations to leverage their expertise and insights to inform our work.
We go to great depths to ensure our model actually results in empowerment. We developed an extensive monitoring and evaluation system that measures a series of empowerment indicators every month. The result is a real-time understanding of our social impact and proof that our model is working. Our findings are shared on our web site. Visit krochetkids.org.
