Moments That Make You -Kenya has begun a project in reaching out through grief counseling, to the poverty-ridden community-based Organization of Kangurue (Kayole) at a shelter called Toto Angel Centre. We counsel children from the age of 5-14 years who are grieving because they are Orphans, abused, neglected, abandoned by their parents on the streets, and vulnerable to HIV. The home also reintegrates the children back into their families (extended) to give them a chance to grow in a family. The children undergo a lot of grief in their short lives and Moments That Make You counseling tools are being applied to help them find healing and a hopeful future. We also grant Counseling to the young generation above teens to 25 years in the community surrounding the center and in the city of Nairobi.
MTMY will be offering Grief Counseling Classes and Certification coming late 2024 or early 2025!
“Having experienced grief in my life I could only deal with that using beliefs that did not serve me well. After being able to work with Moments That Make You grief counselor, I have been able to overcome my grief and learned tools that would help in small steps to have a better today and tomorrow. This work has profoundly affected my life since I started helping at an orphanage here in Kenya. The joy and fulfillment that came from giving these children a place to be safe, share their feelings, and be safe enough to share their grief has been a huge gift and an honor with this work and MYMY would like to build a foundation that can train others to do this work.”

“Having Victor working with us has been a blessing and a privilege. His attention to detail and efficiently making sure every client is taken care of is spectacular. During the year it was clear Victor had the heart to do the grief work. By spring of 2024, he will be completely trained and certified to be a Grief Counselor. During the 2023 year, he has reached out to orphanages in the Nairobi area. Our mission is to have a branch there training others to do this work by late 2024-early 2025. His work there with the children has been inspiring and shows his love and dedication to helping others with this work. We hope to bring the tools to many there in Kenya to help many more heal from their past wounds and grief. “
