Cindy (Director) Cindy is the founder and director of Start Small and lives in Nakuru, Kenya. Cindy moved to Kenya in 2013, after her initial trip to Kenya in 2011, where she was struck by the number of children desperate to attend school. Being naturally determined, driven and passionate about making a change and helping those less fortunate, she simply couldn’t look away once she saw so many children in need. Her hard work and insatiable love for life has led Start Small to become the successful organisation it is today.

Sharon (Office Manager) Sharon joined the Start Small team in 2018 and quickly became a vital member to our team in the office with administration work, as well as on the ground with our children and projects. The children have grown to love her quickly and the parents to trust her immensely. Sharon has a bachelors degree in education with a background in teaching. Sharon too, has a real love for life, fun and laughter and we are so glad to have her.

Davey (Transportation Manager) Davey is the primary driver for the children who attend PCEA Jitegemea. He spends a great deal of time with all of them, picking the up each morning and taking them home every evening. Davey is kind, gentle, attentive and a great role model; especially for many of our boys who are maturing so quickly. He has been essential in ensuring our children have someone to trust, confide in and look up to. He is also key in communicating with office staff of any concerns or needs of the children, ensuring their health and safety.

Zack (Field Work Assistant) Zack joined Start Small in 2019 and has been amazing at looking after all of our children and their families. He assists Davey in transporting the children to and from school which makes it possible for him to really know the situation of each of our children and their families at an individual level. Zack is key to the foundation of our program which strives to be a family and community to those we serve. Zack’s incredible empathy, compassion and joyful spirit is so important to Start Small as a whole and we are very lucky to have him.

We are a very honest, forthcoming and transparent charity. If you have any queries whatsoever please do not hesitate to get in touch – we are quite a friendly bunch!
