“I feel compassion to care for all the community at UCBC and feel very blessed to participate in the service-learning program.”
Kavira Angélique Malikidogo, a leader and mother to many, is often called by her fellow UCBC students, “Mama Malikidogo.” This is in part because she is in fact a mother of 5 children, but also a result of her passion to serve the community. “I feel compassion to care for all the community at UCBC and feel very blessed to participate in the programs like service-learning,” she explained. As a service-learning intern at UCBC, she helps the program develop service-learning goals for the classroom.
Entering her last year as a student in theology and leadership, she reflects on the support and encouragement received from her husband. “He is willing to help with the responsibilities of caring for our children so I can study and serve the community. He makes my work his work too!”
Kavira felt called by God to study at UCBC to learn how to best serve and lead. Commitments that she also wants to pass down to her daughters and others. After she graduates, Kavira wants to develop church programs and a school that supports orphans, and bring together women who received opportunities in education help others in vulnerable situations.
