Hobbies: Preaching, swimming, listening to gospel music, and hanging out with friends.

Afraid of: Failure.

Role Model: Wilfred Lai and Terresia Wairimu. “And I also love Obama.” Wilfred is my pastor and I love him because he doesn’t compromise. He stands by his decisions even if he’s alone. Terresia had been a mother to the motherless. She’s educated so many children through his children’s home and she’s a giant of faith. Obama- eloquence, standing against all odds, and he cares for his family.


If money were no object, what would you do all day? I would still do mentoring.

How long have you been with Hatua? 1.5 years

How did you come to work here? I saw the job advertised. It’s close to my home and my son loved coming to the library.

Favorite Program/event: University Mentoring Program. It’s bridging the gap between the work place and the school. It’s also creating a big daddy to those who don’t have. It also acts an eye opener to university students.

How would your friends describe you? Outgoing, loving, and having a big heart.


Pet Peeve: People yelling at me and putting me in a box.

What’s something you’re really proud of doing? Bringing up a Godly family and unleashing potentialities of individuals and helping them to develop coping mechanism and solving their problems.

What’s something on your life’s bucket list? Visiting Israel and to educate and mentor 10 kids which are not my offspring and help them get jobs.

    Winfred Muthina is indeed a loving person. She has been more than a mother to me. For all the time that i have been close to her, i came to discovered that she is that kind of a person who want to see everyone prospering in their life. Furthermore, she can go beyond her capability just to make sure that she helps one in their difficulties that they may be encountering. She loves her work and she does it with all her heart. She is indeed a mother to all and therefore she welcomes each and every person. I really do loved her for all her counselling that she has given onto me. She has transformed my life because since the day that i came to be that close to her, she has really taught me alot. I do thank you and may God protect you from every kind of misfortune. Keep it up.
