Description

WOMEN: AFRICA’S GREATEST RESOURCE How can we take Uganda's most vulnerable women and equip them to become leaders in their communities?

Marilyn Skinner, co-founder of Watoto, will be speaking and sharing inspirational stories on "Women: Africa's Greatest Resource"

Together with her husband Gary, Marilyn leads Watoto, a community church in Kampala, Uganda which sees over 27,000 people gathering every week.

In 1994, Gary and Marilyn began reaching out to Uganda's orphaned and vulnerable children and women, and today Watoto has cared for more than 4,000 children and empowered almost 3,000 women to become leaders in their community.

Marilyn has been at the forefront of Watoto's work with women and strongly believes that when women are given purpose and dignity through practical training and comprehensive psychosocial support, then they can become incredible leaders and mothers in the nation. She is an energetic and passionate speaker, who will inspire you with stories from the heart of Uganda, as well as giving you the opportunity to respond by partnering with Watoto. Marilyn firmly believes that when a woman is equipped, she can reach her full potential, and her whole family is transformed.
Since Watoto began, we have placed thousands of orphans in families, empowered vulnerable women to reach their communities, rescued babies and former child soldiers, and sent children's choirs across six continents. Find out more at: www.watoto.com
