Phanis Ayuma


After 30 years of living in Kawangware, Phanis, still loves it, loves Nairobi and loves Kenya. It would be normal to look at her life and see only hardship. By having to provide for 10 people on her own, having to find a way to pay school fees, daily food consumption, house rent and other daily costs it would be easy to see only the burden, but she instead affirms that life is simple. She loves Kenya and sees herself as lucky to be able to provide for those she loves and cares for. Phanis is resolved that America can learn much from Kenya, one thing being that living day to day is not a burden but an opportunity. Providing for your family is something to be proud of and something never to be taken for granted.
