Mary Paul - My  Story


""I am in tears of joy when I recall where Baraka Women’s Center removed me from and who I am today. I have two good businesses of my own and have opened a bank account where I do my savings. I have stopped taking drugs. If it were not for BWC, I would not be who I am today."

Ann Muthoni Wanjiru - My Story


"I have regained my self-esteem, my light in life rekindled and have girls I am finding like my sisters. I have found a home I felt I had lost after my mother’s death. I am praying for Baraka Women to grow big and big because it’s a home for the hopeless and homeless. God help Baraka Women’s Center to get funds and be in a position to accommodate many women and their children by giving them the voice they lack."

“This was the first time after so many years I had people who believed in me and never condemned me for my mistakes....Your story is your weapon, and be willing to share it to the world. I’m encouraging many young women and old women who are desperate and have lost hope to visit Baraka Women’s Center to gain back what they have lost in life."

Florence Njeri - My Story

"One day when I had been sent on an errand in the evening when four men attacked and took me to an abandoned house. They gang raped me repeatedly in turns without stopping. I could not scream because they had covered my mouth. By the time they left me I was no longer myself. All that had happened to me when I was a small girl  came back to me so powerfully that I was out of my mind. I went home and was taken to the hospital where I was admitted and started being treated.

"When I called her [Center Manager Teresia Mwangi] she invited me to visit the Center which I did. I found Teresia and teacher Wanjiru who counseled and awakened my self-esteem and got the wings to fly again. They believed in me and asked me to join other women in what they were doing.  I received a refresh course on entrepreneurship and leadership."
