In Episode 111, Dr. Karen speaks with Megan Parker, Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Co-Founder of Abide Family Center in Uganda, about:

  • The story of Abide Family Center – discovering that many children in Ugandan orphanages were there because their families could not support them and the resulting family preservation programs.
  • Prioritizing Ugandans as the primary informers, participants, and executioners of programming.
  • Megan’s trajectory through leadership – eventually choosing to develop her leadership skills through further education in order to continue to provide excellence.
  • The importance of education and training when working in international, non-profit leadership settings.
  • Reading the signs and knowing the appropriate time to step down from leadership roles.
  • Her advice to young starters in ministry and missions.
