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 are 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.

Meghan, 3, Baby Class
Meghan is an only child, who loves dancing and singing.
In fact, she shakes her hips to the music with passion!
She joined Baby Class at Chaminade Adelle Pre-School in
January. Meghan is a social butterfly, both at school and
when we have the children at Eagles’ Wings. Her favourite
food is pilau, which is rice spiced with masala and
Judy Wanjiku 5, Pre-School
Grandmother: Rose Karemi
Judy is a five-year-old with a good heart and a happy face. She goes to Pre-school at Chaminade Pre-School where readily raises her hand to participate in class.
Her grandma, Rose, took her in after Judy’s mom went to
prison. Her grandma also raising her own daughter, Esther.
Despite great challenges in her young life, Judy finds joy,
especially eating flavoured rice.
In August we open a small restaurant for Rose where she is
cooking tea, rice and beans, and Kenyan specialities. Rose is highly disciplined and walks far to bring her weekly savings to Eagles’ Wings.
Florence 10, 4th Grade
Sister: Sharon and Millicent
Florence, or Flo, is a quiet girl but quite active. She is
the youngest of three girls, all in Primary School, who
live with their mom. Their dad died in a work accident
four years ago, leaving the family desperate.
Florence loves ball games and rice and beans.
Scarlet Skylar, 11, 6th Grade
Mom: Diana Atieno
In the evenings after Skylar, 11, finishes her homework
and cleans up after dinner, she rushes outside with her
little sister, Ashley, to play hide-n-seek. Skyler frequently
has Ashley by her side when their mom is working.
On Eagles’ Wings opened a small kiosk for her mom in
2022 where she sells new shoes, sandals and school bags.
She recently expanded to offer make-up. Despite repeated
shutdowns over national fear of violence during the
presidential elections, her business is doing well.
Skyler is a good student in her Fifth Grade at Loyal King
Educational Centre in the slum.
Jabez, 12, Special School
Mom: Joyce Nduku
Brother: Jepheth, Kenedy Chege and David
Jabez, also called Macau, is always smiling and
enthusiastic. He has a light inside. He has three brothers
and is the youngest of the family.
Jabez is autistic and non-verbal but understands Swahili
and some English. We believe he cannot speak because he
has never attended a school where he could deal with the
disability. We believe he can have a much better life when
he learns to speak and sent him to a special school in
His mom, Joyce, has one of our best businesses, selling
staples like diapers, toilet tissue and the moment’s hottest
Teresia Muthoni, 14, 9th Grade
Mom: Susan Wirimu
Teresia is a quiet 14-year-old, who has her nose in a book
whenever time allows. Reading and learning are her passions that show up in her high marks at Siloam Education Centre.
When Teresia is not helping her mom, Susan, with chores,
she also likes to skip rope. The family’s favourite food is rice
She lives with her mom, Susan, and sister, Sabrina. Susan
quickly had a lot of customers at her the restaurant we
opened for her in July, then broke her arm in an accident a
month later. She will resume in September.
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 jewellery with beads.
Bahati, 16, 11th Grade
Guardian: Francis Aresh
Bahati has been orphaned twice. Her mom died when she was young, then she was orphaned when her father was sent to prison seven years ago. So, Francis, her father’s friend in this picture with Bahati, paid a woman to take care of Bahati, her older sister and younger brother. He also took over their school fees. After the government tore down 70 percent of our slum last year, the lady taking care of the children died late in 2021. So, she lost her second mom.
We met this frightened but determined young girl in late April and quickly sent her off to her first year of a high school near Lake Victoria. She left us with a smile.
Her new school is a 12-hour drive, so she will stay with another of our families in that area during short school breaks. During the one, long school holiday, we hope to return her to Nairobi to see her brother and sister. This will be the only time during the year she will be able to meet with a sponsor via Zoom.
June Nduku, 18, Post-High School
Mom: Jackline Nzilani
Brother: Stephen Ngumbao
Sister: Gregory Wambua
June is a vivacious and beautiful high school graduate, who is waiting to begin heavy equipment training in May. She is a dancer and soccer player. Her mom describes June as a clever girl, who happily undertakes whatever she is asked to do. As the only girl with three brothers, June helped her mom to keep the house clean.
Due to the demolition of 70 percent of our slum, the family
moved far from her school last year. So, On Eagles’ Wings paid for her to board at Embakasi Girls High School to finish her last year where she had been attending. We also hope to send her to one year of post-high school training to prepare her for a job or business. Her dream is to become a lawyer.
In 2021, we helped her mom, Jackie, to begin a business,
selling smokies and eggs.
