Jerusa Muthoni, aka Maggie, has been working in the Nyendo-Office in Nairobi since June 2023. She became aware of nyendo through her daily interactions with Irmgard as her personal fitness trainer. One day, Irmgard requested Maggie to do outside catering at her Oseki farm, and this is where Maggie got the chance to interact with the headteachers of Kangemi. Through this interaction, she was able to gain an even deeper understanding of nyendo and its operations and this sparked her interest even more. From then on, she got the idea of joining a group or organization where she could contribute however little, to ease the burden of people living in disadvantaged communities. Coincidentally, Irmgard approached her and offered her a chance to join nyendo. “Here it is I have been given a chance to complete someone’s life,’’ she thought to herself and happily took up the offer.
Maggie was born in a small village called Kinoru in Meru County, where she attended her primary and secondary school education. It was not until college that she joined her elder sister in Nairobi. Maggie has a diploma in Food and Service Techniques from Kenya College of Commerce and Hospitality. She has worked in different hotels, lodges and restaurants, serving at various capacities.
