Irene Maiko Kiria

Area Director

Irene is friendly and outgoing, charming and easily liked. She first joined Young Life in high school, during the midst of much teenage rebellion. She engaged in many fights with other girls, stole things and disrespected her parents. Yet in 2007, she met the Lord at a Young Life camp and her life was completely transformed. Irene committed her life to Jesus, joined a Campaigners Bible study, and learned how to pray, read the Bible and grow spiritually. Now, Irene leads other lost and rebellious girls to Jesus through Young Life in Arusha. As Area Director, she runs club, camp and contact work in the urban and north areas of the city. Here, she continues to see more and more lives transformed by the gospel, just like hers was. We are so thankful for Irene’s steadfast leadership and willingness to love kids.
