Important message about the COVID-19 Coronavirus

In an effort to care for all of our personnel, families, and mission around the world, EMI has been taking a number of steps in response to the progress of COVID-19.

Location-specific Crisis Management Teams are now in place to monitor COVID developments, inform, and care for EMI personnel. All official EMI travel (including project travel) has been cancelled or postponed and no new travel plans are being prepared until further notice. EMI’s worldwide offices are in varying states of closure with personnel working remotely or from home as they are able.

We continue to actively monitor the situation and will respond to new information affecting our worldwide ministry and teams. We view the COVID-19 Coronavirus an opportunity to live out the gospel and our faith in Jesus through the ministry of EMI.

Joined EMI: January 2015

Professional Training & Experience

BSc. Building Design and Technology, Uganda Martyrs University - 2010

Harriet worked at various architectural firms in Uganda actively involved in the design and construction of commercial developments in and around Kampala. This training brought her in contact with the many aspects of architectural practice in Uganda. She then took an internship with EMI Uganda in 2014 and then joined as a staff member in 2015. Here, she has thrived in the type of architectural and construction projects EMI designs and executes.

Ministry Experience

The work that Harriet does at both EMI in Uganda and at her local church allows her to appreciate the idea that ALL work is a gift from God and using it to serve Him and those around her is a privilege. She is very sure this will be a lifelong lesson.


Born and raised in Uganda and Kenya, Harriet comes from two large families with a difference of opinion on everything whether it is because of personality or differences in culture. She loves it!
