  1. In the time that I spend with Esther I see from she the passion for help people with your own experience. listen she talks about a domestic violence survivor really can inspire other in this fight.

  2. I am impressed by the achievements of Rose Foundation in addressing GBV issues in Nairobi. I am grateful to all those who have supported and continue to support RF and it’s staff in their mission to help victims and survivors of GBV. I pray that RF will continue to get the support it requires to continue with this work.

  3. The work that the Rose Foundation is doing amidst a retrogressive culture of ignoring domestic violence and with limited resources is inspiring. Esther Kisaghu’s commitment to fighting against this shadow pandemic is highly commendable. I have personally witnessed this commitment and have knowledge of personal sacrifices she has made to help victims. It is my hope and prayer community and government leaders alike will acknowledge the negative impact domestic violence has on the country and its citizens. May the Rose Foundation continue to garner support for this very important mission of ending domestic violence. Thanks to Boston University for publishing this article.

  4. I have known and followed Esther for a few years. The ministry she is called to pursue is remarkable.
    And it is so needed, to help break many barriers and give more voice to those who are quickly silenced.

  5. RF has been a refuge for many ladies who seek a safe space in Kenya and moreso in Nairobi. Esther, is a wonderful champion and the community is blessed to have you.
