Maggy Barankitse has been variously hailed as “the Mother Theresa of Africa”, a “humanitarian hero”; and “the most impressive Catholic woman leader out of Africa.” She will share about her passion for providing refuge, the role her faith plays in her work, and her reflections on ethical leadership.
