Geoff Kilonzo and Irene Kiema are a husband and wife team and proud parents of 2 kids ages 7 and 12. Raised from humble beginnings, they have always been very keen on opportunities that would make life better for others. To us, this is a lifestyle. The decision to help start Imara School was birthed on the basic need of a classroom. Initially there were about 10 kids who needed a place to attend school and their determined unpaid teacher, Jacqueline who wanted to provide for these kids. The joy and desire on their faces was heart-breaking when I initially met them. The kid’s parents are poor and that is part of the reason the teacher was not paid and the kids did not have a school to attend. The parents wanted great education for their kids but paying for it was a big hurdle.

Hi my name is Star and I love giving back. I have always had a desire to give back to the youth. I started a program called T.R.U.T.H Teach Reach Unite To Honor. This program is designed to TEACH the youth through activities, REACH the youth through song, UNITE the youth through knowledge, and HONOR our elders that paved the way for the opportunities we so richly enjoy. Being musically inclined is a gift that I do not take lightly. With this gift and talent I can be very useful to the charitable cause of Imara Academy.

As far back as I can remember, the most important aspect of my life was to go to school and learn as much as I could. As a young child, I excelled because I wanted to know more about everything and anytime I was bored, I’d figure math problems out in my head.  I’d pass up playing in order to read and escape my poor surroundings and imagine being somewhere else and being on adventures. So, it was only natural that I’d grow up and want other children to have the same opportunities of education and the vast new world it opens up mentally and physically.

Born and raised in Kenya, I have always had a kind and generous heart for children.  Many years ago I came to the United States from a small town in Machakos-Kenya to pursue higher education. My greatest aspiration is to impact people’s lives the same way Jesus did. Everywhere where Jesus went, lives were changed for better. He did it because he loved people and enjoyed seeing people lifted out. He never did it to be recognized. There are many people experiencing pain and misery I am always touched and immensely affected by the many afflictions in the world and especially Africa.
