Frequently Asked Questions
YOU LIVE IN UGANDA?!? WHAT??
Surprise!! Yes, I am currently living in Jinja, Uganda working as a Social Worker at Ekisa Ministries International, a nonprofit designed to improve the quality of life for children living with disabilities. You can learn more about Ekisa by clicking on the "Ekisa" tab at the top of the page!
HOW LONG WILL YOU BE THERE?
Your guess is as good as mine! My commitment is only one year for now, but I imagine I'll be here a while!
ARE YOU GETTING PAID?
Ahhh the question my parents ask me everyday hoping the answer will change.....No, I am not getting paid, but am raising my salary in order to work for Ekisa and live here in Uganda. While this seems scary, I am confident that the Lord wants me here at Ekisa and will provide the necessary funds needed. You can learn more about my fundraising process by clicking the "partner" tab above.
WHAT IS YOUR DAY TO DAY LIFE LIKE?
My day to day schedule looks much like yours does with the exception of an occational chicken on the loose or week long power outage! I wake up and after downing a cup or two of coffee, head to work on the back of a boda boda (motorcycle in luganda). Most days I work similar hours to what you would in the US. Lately I've been doing things like case management, attending staff meetings, organizing case files, and of course sneaking some cuddles in between!
