A film seen her freshman year of college prompted Molly Adamson to travel a road that eventually led her to live in Uganda for six weeks.
Molly, 21, of Camas, wanted to volunteer in Africa for some time, but wasn’t sure about the direction she should go.
“I’d been praying about it for awhile, and then I saw the movie, ‘Invisible Children,’ about child soldiers in Northern Uganda. It was then that I knew where I wanted to travel.”
Molly saved her money for the next few years, and began researching different options. In the fall of 2009, during her junior year at Gonzaga University, she found an outreach program called Empower A Child.
The goal of this non-profit Christian organization is to bring confidence and self-sustainability to orphaned and vulnerable children in east Africa by teaching them skills, giving them an opportunity for education and teaching them about God.
