Tommy Nyawir has a story to tell. The boy who grew up in Kibera, one one Nairobi Kenya’s most challenging addresses, went on to found the dynamic Mirror of Hope organisation to serve the needs of Kibera.

Over the past 7 weeks, Tommy Nyawir from ERFA partner program Mirror of Hope, has been travelling to EREA schools across Australia with Jason Bongers from ERFA.

Thank you to all the schools involved and allowing Tommy’s story to be shared with the students. Many warm welcomes were had.
