The Nyongesa Family

As a mother of 16 at Maono Light, Leah’s days are full of children – and she wouldn’t have it any other way. She parents 14 children at Maono Light in addition to two biological children. She describes herself as passionate about kids, and previously served as a Sunday school teacher before coming to Horizon. One of Leah’s favorite parts of her role in the community is working with her kids on their family farm. Recently, she helped them build a pen for their four sheep! The Nyongesas also care for rabbits and chickens, and some of the boys regularly collect eggs from them. Outside of her role as a mother at Maono Light, Leah enjoys travelling and making friends.
