My wife and I visited their Nyahururu, Kenya children's home in March of 2010. We were totally impressed with the HOPE that the children carried. They applied themselves to their classroom studies and demonstrated their intentions to earn their rightful destiny as leaders of their country, community and in their chosen professions. We talked to many of the children and learned of their aspirations to become doctors, lawyers, politicians, teachers, nurses, dental assistants and occasionally we heard things like airline pilot and rock star. These kids are grounded and thriving in the environment provided for them through the leadership of Violet Gitonga and her team of professionals. We heard that their school was earning academic scores that ranked in the top 5% of the national results. We certainly saw the desire and dedication for each child, each of whom came from the most dire of situations, most often where there were no surviving family members. As we got to know many of the children more intimately we could see they are filled with hope and enthusiasm for their future; their destiny.
This organization is transforming today's underdogs into the leaders of tomorrow... and they are doing it better than anyone else we have seen!
