BRILLIANCE FAMILY INTERNATIONAL was founded the year 2012 and started to operate as a Community Based Organization in Njoro, Nakuru county of the Republic of Kenya. Today we work in 5 countries to create access to education, health care, mitigate the impact of HIV /AIDS, water and sanitation and humanitarian welfare. Over the next 20 years our ambition is to transform the lives of 2 billion people!
The founder of this establishment conceived the idea of transforming the lives of people after his own personal poverty stricken background, that almost shut the doors of the opportunities he had.
Years ago, a young man by the name Isaac Muthengi, an African, Kenyan by his birth and currently a teacher by university education, a Minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, by his calling-Pastor to all of humanity, conceived and birthed BRILLIANCE FAMILY INTERNATIONAL.
Isaac says, “As Christ models for us all: I have room at my feet under my garments of salvation; my robe of righteousness, for all of humanity. This is regardless of race, creed, credo or ethos.
I grew up to being in the humble, tribal village of Gakirwe. The village located in the Eastern region of Tharaka Nithi county, Kenya.
Kenya is a country of more than 50 million inhabitants. It is located in Eastern Africa and has coastline on the Indian Ocean.
An orphan; I was abandoned at a tender age, by my mother and father, to my grandparents and the neighbors. My infancy and childhood were steeped in suffering. By my own experiences, I have an abundance of compassion for the suffering of all of humanity.
As an orphaned child I suffered, a multitude of hardships. Among them: emotional, physical and economic. My soul ached for the love of my mother and father. I hungered, as my body was underfed and malnourished. I thirsted for clean water to drink. I suffered for the lack of medical treatment; a physicians’ care and medicine. Suffer, I did. Compassion, I have.
By the grace of God, scholarships and the generosity of individual donors, I attended St. Paul’s University in Nakuru, Kenya and Bakke Graduate University, U.S.A I earned a Bachelor’s degree in English language and English literature and currently a Transformational Leadership student at BAKKE GRADUATE UNIVERSITY, USA. I went on to have a successful, 14 year, career as a teacher I taught young people about how to critically think. Thus enabling the potential for successful lives. My career was professionally rewarding and intellectually stimulating.
I received a Revelation from the Lord, to start an NGO that will will create lasting solutions to POVERTY, IGNORANCE AND SOCIAL INJUSTICES. I got also a great urge to serve as a Pastor of the meek; full time. The year was 2018. I was serving as Principal of Bridgan Academy( bordering Nairobi and Machakos counties) in Kenya. I resigned my career position, to serve the call.”
