Summer 2016 Newsletter
Raised by a single mother who fed alcohol to her 4 children at night until they fell asleep, Joseph Njoroge’s childhood was appalling. Joseph and his siblings left their mother, an alcoholic who was unable to care for or feed them, and fled to the streets where life became even more difficult. Routinely begging and sifting through garbage for his next meal, Joseph (known as Njoro) resorted to glue, alcohol, and drugs to ease the pain.
Joseph with MCF student in Ndalani
After 7 years of beatings, prison and jail time, and several near death events in the Eldoret slums, he met Charles Mulli who showed Joseph something he desperately needed Love. Trusting no one, he resisted Dr. Mulli’s persistent offers to live with him. Finally, Joseph relented and went to stay with “Daddy” but his acute drug addiction impeded his ability to live with others and he repeatedly ran away. Each time and analogous to Luke 15, “Daddy” pursued Joseph and brought him back.
Through unconditional love, a stable environment, and God’s will, Joseph’s life changed and then began to flourish after attending school at MCF. Despite the difficult transition to Ndalani, he graduated from high school in 2001 and attained a college degree with Honors in Mechanical Engineering. Like many MCF beneficiaries, he chose to help others and today is “Daddy” to 180 former street kids like himself. Joseph is eternally grateful to Mully Children’s Family for the astonishing life transformation he experienced Bwana Asifiwe (praise the Lord)!

smiles, and proceeded with an impromptu scrimmage to show off their new threads. IMG represents and manages some of the world’s greatest sports figures; stages hundreds of live events annually; and is a leading independent producer and distributor of sports media. Asante sana, IMG!
