Hekima Place

About Me: 

At Hekima Place, our mission is to serve the needs of orphaned or vulnerable Kenyan girls by providing a safe, loving home, excellence in education, and empowerment for their futures.

We know that girls are not objects of production or the property of a gentleman. The battered little girls we receive, we feed physically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually—we love them and tell them that there is nothing in the world they can’t do. Our hope is that they leave us as strong, confident, compassionate young women who are ready to change their communities, their country, and the world for the better.

My Passions: 
Women's rights are human rights.
My Languages: 
English, Spanish, Kiswahili
