Maisy Njeri joined the NRCF program in 2014 when she was in Grade 5. She was raised by her mother having lost her father at a tender age. Later after her mother and her other siblings moved to the village due to the high cost of living, Maisy moved in with her grandmother who resides in one of the slums in Dagoretti so that she could continue getting education support from the Ngong Road Children’s Foundation (NRCF).
Maisy worked hard in school through the support accorded to her by NRCF and finished her primary and secondary education. She later pursued a diploma in beauty therapy which has been her passion since her childhood and graduated in 2022.
Maisy Njeri currently works in one of the best spas in Nairobi as a consultant beautician. She is able to comfortably support her mother and siblings. Her life and that of her family have been transformed through the support from her sponsor and the friends of Ngong Road in general.
She is grateful to NRCF and more so her sponsor in the USA for believing in her and giving her the gift of education enabling her to better her life and that of her family.
