Meet Felister

Meet Felister, one of our most inspiring students in 2022.

Felister Wanja was one of our favorite stories of 2022. Felister joined our program in 2019 when she was just two years old. Even at the age of two, Felister suffered from severe developmental delays. When she joined us, she struggled with sitting upright and nutritional concerns such as rickets and low calcium levels. We also noticed she had limitations in motor skills, feeding, bathroom use, and communication skills. Four years later, we celebrate Felister as now she can walk, feed herself, and make meaningful relationships around her as her communication skills improve. On the day she first walked without support, everyone came together to celebrate her. Her mother and our staff members were all overjoyed at how far she had come. There is still a long way to go, including working on her fine motor skills, but we know our Felister is up to the challenge.
