Grace is a Registered Nurse in the United States who is passionate about improving health and wellness as well as making a difference in people’s lives regardless of their background. Having grown up in Masaka District (Uganda), Grace occasionally visited her home village in Lwannume where the Grace-CHAWO initiative is established. Growing up, she witnessed people in her community living in intense poverty, which challenged many rural residents in accessing basic health-care services.
Grace shares many stories where she witnessed neighbors and friends in her village losing loved ones to preventable illnesses due to limited access to basic health-care services. With her background as a health-care worker, Grace felt a deep sense of commitment to make a difference in rural communities by promoting health and wellness particularly to the less privileged.
