Rachel is the founder of Hope 4 Women International and it's Dress a Girl Around the World program. She and her husband Robert have been to Uganda twenty-five times in less than ten years. While there they partner with Smile Africa Ministries and together they work with widows and women at risk helping them to start their own businesses, pamper them with day spas, build and repair crumbling houses, teach new skills, and share their faith and hope in God. Teams have witnessed a transformation of women in despair to women filled with joy and hope for tomorrow as they realize God has not forgotten them. Not only are the lives of the women changed but also those of their children whom are being fed and sent to school in order that their opportunities will be many.
Rachel is a popular speaker in churches, women's groups, conferences, retreats and more. She will move you to laughter and tears as she combines hardships and joy. She will encourage you to step outside of your comfort zone to make a difference in the world around you.
She and her brother, Tomm Eggum, co-authored the book God, Why Don't You Hear Their Prayer?
