Through World Vision, Margo combines her eagerness to give with her passion for sustainable solutions to rescue vulnerable girls in Kenya.
Growing up, Margo’s parents worked hard, but they did not have a lot.
“I had parents who unconditionally loved me.”
“I had a third-grade teacher who saw my potential and gave me a voice.”
“I had a deep belief that God is the center of your life.”
This foundation springboarded Margo to a successful technology career. Working for a global company, she witnessed the power of making big change in the world. Then God began asking her to do something big with her faith.
“I initially thought God wanted me to start new businesses and make a bunch of money,” Margo muses. “But God led me to the story of Jesus using five loaves and two fish to feed thousands. He told me, ‘What you have is enough.’”
The next step was learning how God wanted to multiply her loaves and fish. On the last day of a trip to Africa with World Vision, she got a clear answer.
“The devotional that morning focused on Jesus multiplying five loaves and two fish,” Margo shares. “I knew whatever I was going to find, that’s what God was calling me to!”
Margo also learned about World Vision’s critical work in West Pokot to rescue young girls from early marriage and female genital mutilation. Upon returning home, she began giving to World Vision to build more schools and economically empower families.
Like the loaves and fish, God has multiplied Margo’s gifts, transforming the lives of these girls. And through her planned gift to World Vision, Margo’s legacy will uplift children and families in Kenya for generations to come.
“A planned gift benefits World Vision, because as they’re designing and continuing transformational programs, I know these are dollars they can count on.”—Margo
