Our Uganda team plays such an important role in our organization! We are so grateful for all they do and for the insight they bring to BOH. To get to know our Uganda staff is to better understand our mission and our work. We have 6 staff members in Uganda and each of them brings something different to the table. This month we will meet Cathie, our Uganda Advisor!
Q & A
Q: What is your favorite part of your job?
Cathie: My favorite part is paying school fees for the children and seeing them succeed in their studies, especially the University students.
Q: How did you end up wanting to work for BOH?
Cathie: At the time, I was a teacher and my salary was too low to sustain my family. When there was a chance to work for BOH and the salary was a bit higher, I was very excited.
Q: What is a goal/dream you have for your life?
Cathie: My dream is that I am able to educate my children and have a house for myself.
Q: What are some of your favorites? Favorite hobby? Favorite Food?
Cathie: I enjoy watching movies for fun and my favorite TV show is Family Affairs. My favorite food is chicken and rice stew.
Q: What is an obstacle you have had to overcome to get where you are today?
Cathie: Being a single mother to my two children has been very difficult. By God’s grace and advise from friends, I have managed to go on.
What a blessing she is! Cathie is essential to our work in Uganda and we are so grateful for her. Her cultural insights, work ethic, and dedication to our students are invaluable. It is an honor to watch her help lead WOCAP and care for our students! We hope you enjoyed learning a little more about Cathie and the heart of BOH!
