Orisel Gonzalez, MD , FACOG
I am an OBGYN and have been visiting the Olmalaika Home since 2015. As a woman’s doctor I have identified with the work being done in the Olmalaika Home, protecting young girls from FGM and childhood marriage.
Education is the best tool for empowering girls.
The work in the O Home not only opens doors and changes the lives of the girls, but also impacts their families and their communities in a positive way. The Olmalaika Trust is a light for change and I am amazed every day by the work they do.
Orisel is from Puerto Rico and has traveled with Kim & Kamunge several times to Kenya. If you would like to contact her about the Trust or trips
Gwenyth Davis Retired RN
I am a retired nurse living in Australia, who worked in Kenya from 1965 to 1976. This was when I met Kiki (Kim) and her family and became special friends with her mother.
I had followed Kim's journey and when I found out that she was doing Medical trips to Kenya I decided to participate in one with my friend. In 2013 we went on the February trip that she lead out in with Global Village Ministries and while in Kenya I and my friend traveled back to where I had worked. In this trip I saw the vision for the Olmalaika Home now Trust that Kim had. We stopped and met the first group of girls to move in and since then I have been sponsoring one of them. Our church is also helping to sponsor another girl.
I planned to go back the following year in June/ July, but broke my arm so could not. However I went back in July 2015 and saw the home that had been built and stayed in it for 3 days with the girls. Great memories. Since then I have followed closely what has happened and love the new home and all that Kim and Kamunge are doing. I would love to return and help out but am getting too old so am hoping that somehow I can help her on the Advisory Council.
Please contact me if you would like me to answer any questions you have.EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org or message me on Facebook.

I first fell in love with Kenya in high school when I visited for the first time on a medical trip with Kim. The trip ignited a passion in me for people and inspired me to become a nurse. I have since traveled and volunteered in Kenya twice more.
I fell in love with the girls at The Olmalaika Trust the first time I visited as well. I have a very real desire to help the girls succeed and was able to tutor them in math. I currently resides in Oregon with my dog, Bash. You can email me at: email@example.com

Verle Thompson, DDS & Karah Thompson, RN
"We live in rural Western North Carolina where we own a general dental practice. We enjoy hiking, camping, international foods, and building community. Our two kids are in university and both have traveled to Kenya twice. We first visited the Olmalaika Home in 2016 and we were impressed by the way it was managed and how the beautiful girls could return to childhood and educational opportunities. The way Olmalaika integrates into the community to support the wholistic needs of the community is meaningful to us. We've supported it ever since and have been blessed to take another trip there in 2021.

He is blessed to have the support of his lovely wife Anita, and boys, Luke and Noah.
That first 2010 trip was with Kim and Kamunge, and recently he made his 11th to Kenya with them.
