Utugi Angels is an initiative founded by a couple, Mr. Geofrey and Martha Wanjau, in year 2015, to rescue Intellectually/Mentally challenged i.e epileptic, downs sydrome, Autistic,dyslexia etc teenagers from challenges they face in societies e.g. rape and sodomy, lack of timely and proper food and medical address, rejection and despise treatment, lack of spiritual nourishment , The need was huge and following their financial constraints, brought the children in their own home to live with them to enable them to address those challenges they faced out there. Three years on, the couple has managed to progress the teenagers positively towards re-integration back to communities to participate actively in the economic growth of the state. Financial constraints and limited resources hinders this couple from supporting many teens.
