The Knit-a-square story

Knit-a-square was founded in October 2008 after a family reunion in Melbourne, Australia.

It is based on the grim reality that there are 140 million children orphaned or made vulnerable worldwide with the greater proportion of them living in southern Africa. They live in dire poverty. They lack love, shelter, food, education and warmth.
