Geoffrey Waringa
Gather Fellow, Kenya

Geoffrey Waringa from Mombasa, Kenya, is the Manager of the Garden of Hope Centre, a children's home that provides food, shelter, schooling, and care to orphaned and underprivileged young people. The Garden of Hope Centre is located in an area where drug abuse, poverty, unemployment and illiteracy are commonplace, where many desperate youths join gangs who commit violent crimes. After a daylight robbery incident, Geoffrey convinced a few youths to start a community policing group and report to authorities and gang activities within the neighborhood. He also organized a community outreach program at the Garden of Hope Centre to educate young single mothers on how to engage in productive activities that will help them raise their children successfully. Previously, Geoffrey worked as an Executive Officer performing clerical, interpretation and related duties at the Judicial Service Commission of the Nakuru High Court.
