KCGF is supported by a team that is brought together by one common goal of creating hope to a disadvantaged child. The team works tirelessly and have provided dedicated service to the cause. They have taken risk to reach isolated areas having no basic facilities, ensuring that their efforts are not without notice for the sake of one child’s delight.
Catherine Wanjiru was born and brought up in Kajiado one of the famous Masai Village. She grew up in a culture that promotes early childhood marriage, female genital mutilation (FGM), and beading which was and is still common practiced in Masai culture. In most cases young girls are looked at by parents as a means to make money via cows and goats. As early as 6 years old their daughter may be sold to a suitor of their choosing for marriage and since these girls are too young to understand what is it all about they find themselves married of and that's when Catherine decided to become their voice. Catherine decided that she could not sit on the sidelines while young girls where being abused, mutilated and if they get pregnant they are forced to kill their own children. She has worked with Child Focus Africa (CFA) as the Africa Contact Person and through her involvement she managed to oversee the construction of the challenged children Dormitory in Migwani School. Catherine is currently involved in Corresponding with Kenyan Child Guardian Foundation partners as well as donors and managing the records.
