This month, we are highlighting two incredible individuals of our staff team. In the second edition of our "Meet the Staff" series, you will get to hear from Henry and Kitimbo who oversee our many Agriculture Projects. They are extremely dedicated to BOH's mission and are currently working towards empowering our women to improve their farming using techniques taught by Farming God's Way. We are hopeful for a really prosperous harvest this season!
Henry oversees the Pig & Farming Projects. He is passionate about teaching farming to our women so they can succeed and care for their families. He meets with our women often to check in and advise them on their crops!
Kitimbo, a former member of BSSP, graduated from university and came back to work within the community he grew up in! He developed our Chicken, Vegetable, and Banana Projects, and continually brainstorms new ways our women can sustainably generate income.
Q & A
Q: What is your favorite part of your job?
Henry: Working with needy mothers/women and seeing them pick up new ideas and also building them spiritually.
Kitimbo: Learning strategies that focus on developing the community.
Q: How did you end up wanting to work for BOH?
Henry: I heard an advertisement for an Agricultural Advisor post and I knew I had to apply. I had heard about the work that BOH/ WOCAP was doing and I had always wanted to be a part of change and help underprivileged women/widows. This passion was my biggest motivator.
Kitimbo was a student in BOH's Student Scholarship Program and he graduated university with a degree in Development Studies. He had ideas for new BOH projects that could benefit the women, and it quickly became clear he would be a great addition to our team!
Q: What is a goal/dream you have for your life?
Henry: I want to be a good husband to my wife and a good father to my children.
Kitimbo: I dream of living with families, communities that are free from dependency syndrome.
Q: What are some of your favorites? Favorite hobby? Favorite Food?
Henry: I enjoy listening to gospel music and reading the Bible. I like to watch dramas and my favorite food is meat and rice!
Kitimbo: My favorite hobby is listening to gospel music. My favorite food is matoke and beans!
Q: What is an obstacle you have had to overcome to get where you are today?
Kitimbo: I had to overcome not having better access to education for a lot of my life due to lack of school fees.
BOH would not be what it is today without the faithful work of Henry and Kitimbo! They bring important cultural and practical insight into the day to day tasks and decisions of BOH. We are so grateful for them and the passion and care they bring to their work!
