Our History

Rebecca and Charity met while Charity was an undergraduate student. Rebecca was Charity’s international student advisor and they collaborated on several projects to promote intercultural learning and awareness. They talked of someday working together on a project that would use their expertise, passion, and faith to serve the marginalized in other parts of the world. Bohoka Employment Initiative is the result of nearly ten years of dreaming, praying, and preparing.
