WHO WE ARE

WHO WE ARE

NYASHEP Education Trust is a Kenyan community-based program operating in Kendu Bay County.  It was founded by Peter Liech, a professional safari guide who benefited from Christian Children Fund support (now Child Fund) for his high school education. The program began in 2003 as a give-back to the community, and the team has since grown to include his daughter Kathy Liech, as well as members of an American family with decades of experience in non-profits and mental health.
