A humble beginning –

The story of our founder

In January 4 th 1998 one early morning on my way to work I met 9 year old Pauline Mwajuma, crying hysterically, dirty, looking hungry and desperate. I asked her what was the problem, but she kept on crying and crying, later I came to learn that she had been chased away, beaten and abused by the person she called dad. Their family had family problems. I decided to take her, and look after her. I later took her to a grandmother who was taking care of four orphans all aged between 5 and 15 living in Kibera. I mobilised few resources from my friends and rented a room where poor children could have a safe place to play and learn. I decided to leave my job and run the children centre full time. We had only 4 children and many people including my parents could not understand how I could resign from my Job to spend time with “dirty and hopeless to Forgetting the Past We now at Ushirika look into the future with hope and confidence,with the help of Friends, partners and well-wishers we are now taking care,of 443 vulnerable children. Our aim is to provide quality education and a safe place where kids can play interact and grow into responsible adults have joy and have a reason to live.
