Margaret Kariuki was born in the Mukuru Slum in Nairobi, Kenya. She was given the opportunity to be educated at Ruben Primary School in Mukuru where she excelled. The Ruben Centre gave her a scholarship to secondary school to continue learning. After graduating from college, she found her way back to the Ruben Centre where she now works as Public Relations Manager.
“Sometimes I sit back and wonder if they never gave me an opportunity to go to school, where would I be. Ruben Centre gave me education. Surely, who I am today is because of Ruben Centre," said Margaret Kariuki.
The Ruben Centre gave Margaret a quality education and the tools to transform her life. Her story is just one of thousands of lives transformed by Edmund Rice Mission.
