Grace Atieno Otieno is a member of Onyigo Women Group, a group that is running a community nursery school supported by Amani UK in a remote area of Homabay County in Western Kenya. In the year 2015, a team from Amani UK visited the group and met Grace for the 1st time. She was teaching as a volunteer even though she was not trained. She invited the team to her house to come and pray for her husband who was very sick. After the prayers she was given money for her husband’s treatment but unfortunately he died a few weeks later leaving Grace, a young mother of three, in a very pathetic house and children to raise on her own without any income since he was the sole breadwinner.

Grace was very desperate but thank God Amani UK through Upendo Foundation restored her hope by taking her to college to pursue a certificate course in early childhood development, building her a new house and a start-up capital for a grocery shop.
