Arise N Shine Visionary, Mary Menya, dies at 72

Posted by Hope for the Child on January 1, 2022 at 8:50 PM

Dear friends,

2021, indeed, was a difficult year for us at Hope for the Child, especially because we lost our visionary and my mother, Mary Menya. With my father, Jason Menya, at her side, we began Arise N Shine Community schools in 2007, working towards a simple mission of bringing education access and hope to the most vulnerable children in the community. We started with 7 children in baby class in one of Mary's bedrooms in her home and today we have grown to build 2 schools in Kisumu, serving over 350 children. These schools provide education and nutritional needs daily, with classes running from Pre-K to 5th grade in Kisumu town and Pre-K to 2nd grade in the rural location.

Mary's own upbringing in poverty and the desire to give a better future for needy children is what has propelled her through the years to love children by first feeding them and then investing in their education. 

15 years ago, with love, purpose, and pure grit from a strong woman, Mary Menya, this mission started. With love we press on into the future and carry the torch to bring the vision to pass.

We love you Mama. You are greatly missed, everyday. 

Akinyi Williams
