VOLUNTEERS TUESDAY: MEET BECKY KATHURIMA NTINYARI
Tell us about yourself
Becky is an introspective person who at times looks in from the outside. I love and believe in life, children, art, the law and God.
My motto in life is : “Live Happy. Live Loving. Live Humble.”
Likes and Dislike
I dislike laziness and complaints.
I like spending quality time with people, reading and listening to music.
Any highlights you would love to share with us?
My best and most unforgettable moment is the visit to the children in Mukuru Kwa Njenga, a slum in Kenya. One of the young boys introduced himself to me as Moses Wetangula(the former senate minority leader in Kenya). It was insightful how children look up to us in society. Here was one wonderful boy, deep in the heart of Mukuru kwa Njenga slums, looking up to Moses Wetangula. I don’t think I will forget him. Oh he also made a drawing of me.😄
How did you get to know about us?
I learnt about OAC through the director, Kenyan chapter-Jeffrey Kosgei. It was at a social gathering, and he had a special announcement at the end, about a visit to the Compassionate Home for Children with Disabilities. Since my friends and I always had a drive to make a difference in children’s lives, contacting Jeff about OAC was timely.
What do you have to say about OAC?
My thoughts about One African Child Foundation in the universe is that we are making a difference in our own small way, like a ripple effect-one child at a time
Experience so far
Enriching!😃 Volunteering with OAC feels like a family, united for one cause-the African child. Engaging with the children is always worthwhile. Their thirst for knowledge and new skills is inspiring at its best. Their sincere love and sheer joy is endearing and encouraging. The experience is simply indescribable!
My concluding words are that the greatest gift you can share is time.
