Peter Obwoge is a 50 years old Kenyan and a father of 5 who lives in Nyamira County, Kenya. Peter though, contracted polio when he was an infant and has been immobile all his life. The tides have now changed for Peter, when Optiven Foundation recently intervened and offered him a free wheelchair, which he is now using to move around.
Valentineâ€™s Day is all about showering each other with love. Itâ€™s time to exchange cards, candies, while winning and dinning with our loved ones.
Here at Optiven Foundation, we believe that giving is not a duty but a privilege. That is why we have opted to celebrate our Valentineâ€™s love with those who earnestly deserve a simple hand to lift them from their current state; like Eunice Kemunto, a 25 year old lady from Kisii County, who was born without hands and legs. This single mother resides with her widowed mother and has been brought up in abject poverty.
Kemunto has been immobile throughout her life and has never had the privilege of owning a wheelchair, which would go a long way to help her mobility. Optiven Foundation in partnership with Kenyan Philanthropist in Kansas made a decision to make her move easily. The Foundation has already embarked on giving a number of wheelchairs to Kenyans and in the recent past, we have received over 500 dire requests from immobile Kenyans across the country.
You can also participate in this great cause. You can donate a single wheel chair, and make a life-changing difference on someoneâ€™s life. Be part of Optiven Foundationâ€™s transformation agenda.

As an author and an avid reader I derive great satisfaction in learning from every day experiences. However, nothing prepares my knowledge box from receiving new information than in reading books â€“ the old school texts in different writings. I look forward to becoming a better man and perhaps step up to the likes of my mentors John Maxwell and Wale Akinyemi who are themselves accomplished writers in different aspects of leadership. In my bid to encourage more and more people to read, I have heard the statement â€˜where is the time to read?â€™ over and over again.
