Spokane graduate’s big breaks lead to large accomplishments
He grew up in Nairobi’s Kibera slums, living inside a Timber house. He dropped out of school in form two since his parents could not afford the fees. However, he was lucky as his pastor paid for his education. He later became Kenya’s first government spokesman and now has an ambitious dream for his county.
Dr. Alfred Mutua graduated from Whitworth University and attended Eastern Washington University. He was the editor of the Spokane African American Voice.
What has Dr. Mutua’s big break lead to? He started by planting 5 acres of trees in Mahakos County, hiring local women to water them and donating property so the community could build a sub police station.
See what he is bringing to Machakos only 8 years later…..
As we enter holiday break this weekend at the Clinton School, we wish everyone a wonderful holiday season! Above is a photo from the Clinton Presidential Center holiday party December 18.
