Hear from special guest Dickens Anyati, who has traveled all the way from Uganda to speak to our community! Dickens is the Administrator at Otino Waa Children’s Village. He has lived in northern Uganda all his life and experienced the tragic history of the Lord’s Resistance Army (rebel) group that ravaged the country for 20+ years. He was instrumental in securing the safety of the 78 children from the grasp of the rebels, who then became the first residents of Otino Waa in 2003.
Learn about how Visions of Hope is connecting these two groups and enjoy some tasty eats and refreshments provided by our own Second and Vine Bistro.
