1. How did you first come to hear about New Life?
I came to know New Life in 2003 when a girl I was dating at the time came up with an idea of the two of us spending time together at a children’s home as a date.
2. What made you decide to choose New Life as your beneficiary?
When I first visited New Life, my experience was very enriching. One of the things I most appreciated about the home was the care and attention extended to the babies there. It was obvious from standards of the physical facility (first class), the equipment and the staff, a trait not seen in many children homes in Kenya, that they cared deeply for these children. It also conveyed their
diligence with the resources they were given and appealed to me as an organisation whose work I would be honoured to be associated with. Additionally, I was attracted to the unpopular mandate of New Life - that of rescuing abandoned babies, with a priority for those infected or affected by HIV/AIDS.
3. Since becoming a supporter, how would you describe your relationship with New Life?
New Life Home has a very warm atmosphere, complemented by a friendly and professional staff. Visiting the home makes one want to keep coming back and to give in whatever way possible to continue their work. This is what led me to offer my professional services to New Life, pro bono, as a donation in kind. As someone with experience in events management, I have helped New Life, among other things, to plan their Open Day and Corporate Partners Appreciation Day. Through events like these, I enjoy inviting the community to come and be part of what is happening at New Life.
4. Looking forward, what do you hope to achieve through your partnership with New Life?
Beyond my personal contribution to New Life, I hope to be a true and strong carrier and caster of their vision, to spur others towards joining hands with this remarkable organization, or to chart a new way towards being the much needed change in their own communities.
