Teresa Njeru: Executive director and founder
My name is Teresa Njeru, an unmarried woman in her early 30s who has sacrificed everything in her life to give children with cerebral palsy and profound mental disability a home, and love. While many of her peers would be thinking of their careers, marriage and children, Teresia has dedicated her life to children who can barely understand the magnitude of her devotion.
In the heart of Nairobi’s Kasarani area, Teresia has rented a home where she hosts over twenty-eight children with severe neurological disorders and physical disability. Though most of them are completely oblivious of the surrounding, her presence in the room brings pleasant excitement from those who can see her. With flapping and noises, the children seem eager to narrate the day’s events to her.
