Crazy Love Africa is a non-profit organization founded in 2014 to serve, restore, empower, and strengthen women in Uganda who are HIV positive, single mothers. As a result, we will touch the children in their care, through education, community, and sustainable job creation. By working alongside women as global sisters, we create change, while addressing inequality, strengthening families, and communities. We believe women are deserving of our effort, attention, respect, and love. To date, over 25 women have been empowered with a micro-business grant to provide an opportunity for a sustainable income for their families. We have watched our sisters start sewing shops, small livestock farms, and dairies, and other businesses selling firewood, groceries, used clothing, shoes, and traditional food. When women enter into Crazy Love Africa they join a global sisterhood. Working alongside their fellow Crazy Love Africa sisters in our artisan program, savings group, support circles; receiving education and mentorship and growing stronger together.
Why Crazy Legs?
The “Crazy Legs” theme came directly from our name Crazy Love Africa. After our founder, Jess and her husband Ben adopted their 7th child from Uganda, so many people stated how “CRAZY” it was that they were adopting again! Jess immediately called this “Crazy Love!” The following year our nonprofit was born and the crazy love hasn’t stopped. The Crazy Love Africa sisters and staff are a group full of joy! To keep with our beautiful spirit we ask that you wear some CRAZY, fun socks on your race day! We can’t wait to see all the photos on social media of you wearing your awesome Crazy Legs 5k socks! Let’s have some fun together! Don’t forget to use our race day hashtags: #CrazyLoveAfrica #CrazyLegs5k
