OUR ADVISORY BOARD

Born and bred in Kawangware slums together with the siblings, Mrs Mary Eliaika grew up with a passion to serve the community . She trained as a deaconess at Matongo Lutheran Theological College and thereafter served as the first deaconess with Evangelical Lutheran Churches in Nairobi. As a deaconess, she was accustommed to needs of the congregation coupled with experiences of her child hood  slum life and a big heart to serve MrsEliaka took the burden to find solution for the needy in the country. It was with this in mind that she found the organisation  Heart To Heart to reach out and give hope to those who had given up in life. Her aim was to share the LOVE and CARE  of JESUS to the populace no matter the social or economic background, James 2:15-17. She spent most of her time running HHOC. As the mother of the Heart to Heart family she holds the heart that started this journey. HEr Eperience as a child has led to her resolve to help the disadvantaged in the society. What began with just one child the organisation is reaching more than 800 children now in school courtesy of Heart to Heart, and her dream is to see more and more children getting a good education. Her desire is to see an educated community and coming from the slums education and empowerment is the door to end the vicious poverty cycle.

Mrs Mary Eliaika
Founder President of Heart to Heart Orphan's Children Center (HHOC)

He holds a certificate in Theology from Matongo Lutheran Theological College and served as an assisting Pastor/Evangelist with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Kenya for five years before proceeding for his Bachelor’s Degree in Community Development & Counseling Psychology at Daystar University Kenya. The passion to serve the community came from his background as he grew up in the slums of Kibera with his mother and siblings. Circumstances forced him to be the care giver of his siblings being the 1st born child after his mother died while he was still a teenager. The many challenges he faced through the process became a motivation to expand his family from just his siblings to the community. His desire is to see a transformed empowered community through restoring the holistic dignity of the vulnerable person especially in the slums of Nairobi and the marginalized communities.
