Many Hopes

There’s an interview over at Darling with Alice Kinyua, founder of the organization “Many Hopes,” which invests in the generation of children who can defeat extreme poverty in Kenya:

Before working for Many Hopes (which is known as MUdzini Kwetu in Kenya) I was previously working in a commercial law firm. One day, a friend told me about this home in Mombasa that rescued children from difficult backgrounds. I travelled from Nairobi to Mombasa and spent one week volunteering at the home. While I was there, I spent a lot of time with the children, and half of the girls wanted to become lawyers because a lawyer had fought for their rights. On returning home, I could still hear the voices of the little girls. One week had changed my life. I wanted to return and help them to become lawyers and whatever else they wanted to be. I felt the need to fill the gap that the children described, they had not met a female lawyer whom they could fully relate with, and two weeks later I went back and took up a job as a manager and a legal officer.
