EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, WATOTO US
In 2005, Eugene and his wife joined a team who traveled to Uganda to help build a home in one of the Watoto villages. As a builder, he was intrigued by the idea. That visit was the first time he saw potential in Africa. Soon after, he and his wife joined Watoto as leaders on the Watoto Children’s Choir. In 2008, Eugene stepped into the role of Executive Director for the US Office in Tampa, Florida, excited to continue serving Watoto and remains hopeful for the future.
CFO/DIRECTOR OF FINANCE, WATOTO US
Valerie has always had a passion for serving in ministry. Before joining our team, she accumulated a wealth of experience working in finance within the not-for-profit sector on the West Coast. In 2007, she relocated to Tampa, Florida, and after learning about Watoto she joined our team and used her expertise to help us further develop our financial systems and processes. It’s been a match made in heaven.
DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR, WATOTO US
When the Watoto Children’s Choir visited Tami’s church in Raleigh, North Carolina, she hosted a few members of the choir in her home. It forever changed her life. Soon after, she traveled to Uganda on a build team and was compelled to do more. In early 2015, she joined the US Office as Development Director, using her skills and years of development experience to support God’s work in Africa through Watoto.
DIRECTOR OF PARTNER RELATIONS SOUTHWEST, WATOTO US
Through a series of exciting and supernatural events, Anthony found himself face to face with Watoto’s Founder Gary Skinner, along with James Skinner, Pastor Julius Rwotlonyo and Roland Mitchell. It was obvious that God had orchestrated the meeting and a special bond was being forged. In November of 2019, Anthony visited Watoto Uganda and it became apparent that God was extending the privilege to serve within the Watoto family. In addition to his mentoring role and position as Director of Partner Relations Southwest, Anthony also serves in the development of Watoto South Sudan.
