Alex Maina

Alex Maina - East Africa Director

I am married to Patricia and we are blessed with four children; Collins, Peace, Emmanuel and Jewel.

We both gave up teaching posts to establish The Walk Centre in April 2005, having decided to help children who live on the rubbish dump in Hilton Slum, Nakuru. We were shocked to see children scavenging on a dump just metres from our home and were determined to do something to help.

I met Dan in 2007 and since then we have worked together to bring more and more volunteers to help. Now that we have been able to expand to help other centres, we are proud to see the children that started at The Walk Centre, attending high school and beginning to embark on their adult lives.

I am also a devoted pastor, an active community member and the African Adventures In-Country Director.

Karibu Kenya!
