Jackie Kirigo/Solagratias/Kenya

Jackie Kirigo created a community-based organization called Solagratias, which means that grace is truly and always a gift from God. It is located on the coast of Kenya. She has been called by God to serve in marginalized communities. Her purpose is to strengthen, empower, and enable those most in need, sharing the love of Jesus. She does this with students by helping them with their homework and supplying materials as needed. She assists with school fees and uniforms. During school holidays she provides outings for them and does practical agricultural activities around her farm and feeds them a daily meal. Her hope is to add programs to teach women new skills to support their families like jewelry making, sewing or chicken farming.
