Sr. Felistas combs the slums of Nairobi, Kenya in search of poor, orphaned boys in need of a home.
In Nairobi, boys as young as eight years old, with impressionable minds and no place to call home, are already addicted to drugs and alcohol.
But SLDI & HESA alumna Sr. Felistas wants these boys to stay children for a little longer. She and other sisters visit the boys in the slums 3 times a week.
“We take them to school. We change their lives. They become good people and good citizens of the country.” -Sr. Felistas
At Kwetu Home of Hope, she is providing drug rehabilitation and a stable environment where these young boys can thrive.
It’s still challenging for the boys to change. But she doesn’t give up. Using the local mobilization efforts she learned in ASEC’s training, she is working tirelessly to engage the community to give the boys the extra support they need to stay off the streets.
