Uganda. Margaret Nelson is a retired RN from Washington State. Throughout her career she gained experience in clinical and community health, working with refugees and low-income populations. These experiences prepared her to move to Africa after her retirement, where she served on short-term mission trips and worked in local health clinics. She decided she wanted to do more so she settled down in a small village in Uganda, started building herself a house and developing plans to make a difference in the lives of the people she was getting to know. She worked with a few different NGOs, including a few that she started on her own, but never found the success she was seeking.
After coming across Interweave’s MBS program, she decided that partnering her NGO with Interweave would help her make a real difference. She is currently taking the MBS course for herself while simultaneously facilitating a small group consisting of local church members. We love seeing people make their dreams a reality through Interweave’s programs!
