About Child Advocacy Blog

Eunice Wambui is my name,a freedom lover with a philosophical mind; I tend to ponder over big questions and am driven by the desire to seek the truth. I have an experimental attitude towards life and mostly motivated by big, challenging problems. The world is my little playground! I believe children are the best gifts to us from God they make our life a little more interesting. Children are close to my heart since I am a proud aunt of four and each day spent with them is a learning experience. You can get in touch with me through my mobile phone number 0716 375 625 or through my email
