Philanthropy[edit]

In 2007, she established a humanitarian organization called Caleb's Hope to focus on woman and child welfare, protection, and empowerment specifically in Kenya and Uganda. In 2011, she began using the name Holly Elissa Lamaro (sometimes rendered Lamaro Holly Elissa as in the Acholi tradition) after elders of the Ugandan Acholi people honoured her with the name Lamaro, which means "having a love for people, a love for humanity".[1]
