Faith was born and raised in Nairobi. Young, outgoing, and passionate about the plight of women and children, she earned a degree in law and graduated with honors from Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology in November 2012. Immediately after graduation, Faith began working on projects advocating for the protection of women and children’s rights, including donor relations and legal affairs at Brydges Centre Children’s Home in Kitingala, Kenya. Selected as one of 15 from a pool of thousands of applicants countrywide, Faith received an award from the European Union to produce a radio documentary covering the life and struggles of street mothers through an organization called Docusound.
Faith joined the SAI and Servant Forge team in June 2013 as a volunteer in the organization’s gender-based violence (GBV) initiatives and was quickly promoted within the organization as a member of staff. As GBV Program Officer for SAI and Servant Forge, she coordinates SEMA (a Kiswahili word meaning to “speak out”), the SAI and Servant Forge youth GBV initiative that promotes attitude and behavior change among males and females in both urban communities and university settings. While working full time with the SEMA initiative, Faith also volunteers as a Sunday School teacher at her church and continues to provide advisory services to Brydges Center Children’s Home.
