After two years, she decided to quit her job and move to Kenya.


Ahiga returned to Mt. Carmel on Wednesday to share her experiences with the elementary students.


She is the co-founder of the Grain of Rice Project, an organization that seeks to empower Kenyans through educational and training initiatives in Jesus’ name. Amy is passionate about ensuring children from marginalized and underprivileged parts of society in Kenya have access to quality education.
