Faith Kenya was established in 1996 by ARI graduate Wenslause Mukhwana because he wanted to work closer with the people at the grassroots within his own community. Sadly, he passed away unexpectedly in 2009, while Kisi was still in Japan. Upon his return, Kisi took up the reigns, but was soon hit with another devastating blow when his wife, and active member of their farming group, also died.
For over 16 years Andrew worked for the Dagoretti Children’s Center, a project in Nairobi run by Feed the Children. The center cares for orphaned and destitute children as well as those who are physically and mentally challenged and Andrew was brought in to teach both children and young adults about theories and practices in agriculture…..
Moses has five children, three of whom his family took in after they lost their parents. His wife Millicent is a priest in the Anglican Church of Kenya, serving four congregations (Nyamninia Parish) in the Diocese of Maseno West. One of the many church projects he assists with is administration support for 300 Compassion International sponsored children (up to three kids from one family can be sponsored).
For the last 10 years Pamella (and she likes both of those ‘L’s in her name) has been serving as an administrator at the Ulumbi Secondary School, where she works closely with the school principal in managing operations and also assists in preparing examinations. She advocates hard to the school’s agriculture club to move toward organic practices for their long term health benefit, but this has proven to be an uphill battle as chemical fertilizers are subsidized and heavily promoted in Kenya and the students believe they are the key to getting quick and abundant yields.
Look forward to reading more about the ARI Graduates on this page soon!
