Staff Kiota

Next to the board, we have 7 local employees as staff of Kiota. These employees deal with daily tasks and they take care of the children. It is important to have local employees due to the culture and the feeling of belonging. Next to that, we as Kumbatio believe that it is mostly about sharing knowledge from 'the West' - think of volunteers and interns - and resources to actually mean something together in a country like Kenya. 

Additionally, a permanent psychologist is scheduled in monthly to talk to the children (and their families when needed). Quality is something we value highly. This means we would like to give the children a meaningful turn in their lives so they can make healthy life choices to build their future on. To achieve that, the children need regular therapy to process traumas and to gain new insights in order for them to build towards a better future.

Social worker, Grace Wangui Gachagua

Grace is a true social worker – her past situation is comparable to the situation of the children of Kiota. She is responsible for updating the children’s (and their families) files and she has to assess if the children are ready for reintegration.
