On Eagles Wings Family

Rescue & Restoration

 

On Eagles' Wings Family Rescue & Restoration (OEW) helps whole families come out of the sex trade in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya. We rescue families in which either a child or a parent is selling themselves for sex so they can feed the family. 

 

The photos below show some of our children who have needs their parents cannot meet or are in danger of being sold or married at a very early age.

She is a third grader at Loyal King’s Education Centre, two years behind her big sister where she is an above-average student.

Enoch,14, 8th Grade 

Mom: Grace Nduku
Brother: Joshua
Sister: Mercy

We came to know Enock through a concerned neighbor who thought that he needed help because he was being exploited by his mother and sister. Both had just given birth, so the women kept Enoch from school to care for the babies.

Sometimes he had to bring food for the family. In despair, Enoch ended up on drugs. Through tears during our May camp, he gave his life to Christ and stopped taking drugs.

Today On Eagles Wings is sending Enoch to school after missing three years. He has a great heart and just needs encouragement and love.

Isaak is a happy-go-lucky, super-talented soccer player.  Although he is two years younger than his elder brother, Isaack is a natural leader who watches over his little sister and brother.

He was a good student throughout Primary School at Mukuru Kwa Njenga Primary and just began Ninth Grade boarding school in May. Isaak hopes to hit a growth spurt soon because is small for his age. Yet he cleverly overcomes his stature by keeping his eye on his goal of achieving and making a better life for himself.

Fridah 16, 11th Grade

Fridah just started tenth grade this year with gusto. She is a hard worker and is our Number 2 best High School student. She started Tenth Grade in May, and we expect high marks from her. Compared to her Eight grade marks, she has skyrocketed.

She tends to be calm and friendly, softly lighting up a room. Fridah is very new to OEW, and she is easy to love.

In her free time, Fridah likes to create bracelets and jewelry with beads.

In January, Sharon began her third year at Kamuthanga S.A High School outside of Nairobi. She is an average student, and her favorite subjects  are Agriculture, History and Government. 

 

As the oldest of three siblings, Sharon is great at taking care of her little brother and sister and helping her mom when she is not in school. She is soft spoken and a bit shy.

 

Sharon loves dancing, cooking and making mats. At home, she is jovial and enjoys story telling.

Emily Oriwo, 24, College

Mom: Abandoned

Brother: Steve, Cliff, Mike, Austin
Sister: None

 

Steve was 17 and Emily was 15 when their parents abandoned them in the slum to return to their village in 2015. Out of desperation to go to school, Emily began selling herself. Thankfully, we found Steve and Emily in early 2016 and rescued them.

 

After we helped Emily finish high school and a year of vocational training in food and beverages, she opened a small business that supported her for two years. She also attended school part-time with her profits. Then the riots came. This March during a political demonstration, all her stock was stolen, and she had nothing remaining. Much of the area was ravaged.

Now we want to assist Emily with her remaining eight months at a renowned international school in Nairobi for food and barista training. If you meet, she will be able to make you a great cappuccino.
