Samuel Gitau – Kenya

Regional Director

Sam was once a troubled teen who refused to go to school. Then he met Martin Wamalwa and became one of Martin’s first club kids. He was raised by his grandmother until she passed away leaving him orphaned. Martin stepped into a father figure role for Sam and prayed for him constantly. He gave his life to Jesus at Young Life camp and was completely transformed. Martin convinced Sam to go back to school where he excelled and earned the very best marks on his report card. His hard work was rewarded with a sponsorship through Young Life’s Developing Global Leaders program. After graduation, he got a job as a banker but felt a strong calling to work for Young Life. Sam is now the regional director for the central region of Young Life in Kenya.
