Trustee (Uganda)

Doris holds an executive master’s degree in business administration from the Eastern and Southern African Management Institute, in conjunction with the Maastricht School of Management (Arusha, Tanzania). She also gained a BSc in international business/systems from Taylor University (Indiana, US).

Doris and her husband Simon have a young family with three beautiful children: Isaiah, Nicole and Timothy.  

Doris currently works as a business analyst consultant for a social business called  The Uhuru Institute for Social Development; a business committed to foster socio-economic transformation among cooperatives and their members in Uganda whilst inspiring them to generate wealth together. The key components of her scope of work include: strategy, performance management, data quality assurance, data analysis and reporting. 

She first learned about Biojemmss from Siân, who explained its mission and vision to address the needs of vulnerable children in Uganda and unashamedly speak out about Christ’s unfailing love for them. While the decision to actively get involved took some time, she believes God has a powerful purpose for the ministry and is excited to be part of it.

As well as being passionate about God, Doris is a strong proponent of multicultural diversity and loves travelling, reading, volleyball and the French language.

“I firmly believe in the need to reach out to the vulnerable people groups in Uganda and Biojemmss has provided a wonderful platform to meet the needs of at least one such group: the children of Uganda. I am reminded that I have a role to play in this call from the book of James:

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world” (James 1:27, NIV).
