Teresia is originally from Eastern Kenya.  She is a single mother of four kids and has lived in Kibera since she was 11.  Before coming to work with GORP, Teresia struggled to find a job.  She spent many grueling hours chopping and carrying firewood to sell in attempts to feed her family.

She loves to sing and dance and is a quick learner.  She loves working with GORP because it has relieved her of the stress of carrying firewood.  Her goal is to save enough money from her work to build a house in her rural home.
