While participating in a short-term mission trip to Kabale, Uganda in 2009, with Journey’s Crossing, Andrea found her life’s passion and purpose. After working in Kabale for 5 years, in 2014, Andrea founded the charitable organization Rukundo International (RI), to empower Uganda’s most vulnerable through educational and economic opportunities. RI currently serves over 1,000 community members, mostly young children, through a school, community center, scholarships, a girls’ empowerment program, and other community initiatives.
