Mercy is Home

It is early Wednesday morning, and I am with my two daughters. We navigate Nairobi’s tangled traffic and pulsing central business district on our way to visit the Maisha Girls’ Safe House. We are only approximately 20 minutes from bustling downtown Nairobi and immediately sense that this is a truly safe space for the dozens of girls who call it home. It is our first visit here and I can already tell that, besides excitement, there is something different moving in me.

Kenya Jump Rope Champions

Kibera settlement in Nairobi Kenya is where the country’s first every jump ropers sprang from. Introduced by world-class jump roper Mike Fry in the streets of Kibera, the sport grew though the community, and the area is now home to many a jump rope champion. They now pass their skills on to the younger generations, creating a space for young people to feel free and express themselves.
