Street Journeys

In the heart of Nairobi, where abandoned children wander the streets with no relief from the grim realities of poverty, hope for the future was dim until renowned Kenyan actress Anne Wanjugu restored the children's spirit through the healing power of theater. But when an unexpected event put their resilience to the test, the children were forced to draw on their own strength; they needed to glean lessons of faith, family, and the spirit without their mentor.

The inspiring story of Anne Wanjugu and the former street children who reside at her home in Shangilia Mtoto Wa Africa (Rejoice, Child of Africa) culminates in a triumphant journey from the makeshift stage of a small Nairobi church to the bright lights of Broadway.
