New Country, New Hope

Wanjiru Kamau helps African immigrants and refugees adjust to U.S.

When waves of refugees from Rwanda started appearing in the United States in the 1990s, Wanjiru Kamau, who grew up poor in rural Kenya, found that she could understand their issues better than most Americans. In 2000, she quit her job at Penn State University and withdrew $10,000 from her retirement account to start the African Immigrant and Refugee Foundation. Since then, Kamau has helped more than 6,000 immigrants from 45 countries adjust to their new lives in the United States.

My Generation visits the philanthropic work of Wanjiru Kamau.
