My name is Everlyne Imbenzi Onyango. I am a field partner in Kakamega and Nairobi, Kenya for Hungry For Life. I hail from Shikokho village, Kakamega south district, But married in Kisumu district.
I am married to my lovely dear husband George and we are blessed with 2 lovely and beautiful girls Chelsea (1997) and Hope (2010). We live in Nairobi.
I started my involvement with Hungry For Life way back in 2009 doing their logistics before and on arrival in Kenya like transport and accommodation. I got fully involved with HFL in June 2016 when I started working with the projects in Kakamega and in 2017 in Nairobi.
Since joining HFL I have been able to be in touch with Arise and Shine Early Childhood Development Centre, the Women’s Project in Kakamega and with Shiphra Home in Nairobi.
I work as a Community Development Officer whereas my duties are to purchase, sort and distribute monthly food hampers and tuition needs for 65 families, and to support Arise and Shine ECD, to communicate regularly with the HFL project manager, Provide reporting, and conduct regular onsite visits to monitor project activities just to mention a few.
Previous to this I was a trained tours and travel operator and operated as such for 12 years, I loved it when I joined HFL since I was aware of what they do and how they have impacted many lives in the community. It has also been a good experience for me while hosting the teams that visit Kakamega and Nairobi as this has made me closer to them and got to knew them better.
It is such a blessing to be part of the Hungry For Life Team.
