198 – Jeremiah Kuria of Maaimahiu, Kenya, Father of Three and Co-Founder of Ubuntu Life a NGO & Global Lifestyle Brand
Our guest this week is Jeremiah Kuria of Maaimahiu, Kenya, the father of three adult children and co-founder of Ubuntu Life, a Non-Governmental Organization and global lifestyle brand that provides economic security to hundreds of families raising children with special needs.
Jeremiah reflects on his growing up in Escarpment, Kenya as the oldest of six children, the cultural differences, his paternal grandfather who was an assistant chief in their village, working in a children’s home in Kenya, and going to school, working and living in Grand Rapids, MI for eight years.
Jeremiah also reflects on the chance encounter in he had in 2000 with Zane Wilemon, a Texas pastor doing missionary work in Kenya and how that friendship led to the creation of Ubuntu Life, a NGO and global lifestyle brand providing economic security to hundreds
of families raising children with special needs.
It’s an enlightening and inspiring story about serving the poorest of the poor and providing meaningful employment to those willing to make the effort to improve their situation.
