What does Okoa do?
For those who think Okoa does a lot...you are right.
Okoa started as a home for orphaned and vulnerable children. Okoa founders, Tyler and Liv Workman, had a vision to rescue children from dire situations. As you can imagine, once they moved to Uganda in 2012, their vision and dream began to truly take shape. What started as a dream to care for a few children, became a vision to transform entire communities.
Gradually, each of Okoa's projects was added in response to the needs of the vast community. As the years have passed by, new needs and new opportunities have presented themselves. Okoa approaches each new project possibility with an open mind and a desire - not to give hand outs - but to empower families to stay together.
