Victoria Global Ministry was founded in 2014 in memory of Victoria Nyambura Muchiri,
a biology student at The Ohio State University and a 2019 graduate of West Liberty
Salem High School. Victoria, her mother Faith, and brother Victor visited their native
Kenya in 2009. While there, Victoria observed children roaming the streets and
suffering from malnutrition. Victoria was heartbroken by the poor living conditions, so
she told her mother that she would volunteer to help those children after graduating
from college. Victoria’s dream was cut-short when her life tragically ended on August
7, 2014. Victoria Global Ministry is bringing this dream to reality by operating an
orphanage for 20 orphaned or vulnerable children in central Kenya.
