Nicholas Ndonye Mutuku is the organized, capable, mature head nurse who has been with the Kisesini Clinic since its beginning in 2007. Initially he was an accountant. He was encouraged to study nursing by his mother who thought nursing would provide the feeling of helping his community that Nicholas wanted. His Community Health Nursing degree was completed in 3 1/2 years. He has worked in Nairobi, Mombasa Highway, and then was in charge of surgical wards and theater in Machakos. When he was assigned to Kisesini there was a clinic builing, but no solar power and no staff housing. He lived in the local market area until the staff housing was completed. He was joined by temporary staff for short periods of time until Vincent arrived. Nicholas is married to Jacinta who is a teacher at the local elemetary school. Their daughter, Valentine, was born 2 1/2 years ago. She adds life and happiness to the school as well as the clinic community.

If you save 100 lives, you are a nurse.” Vincent particularly enjoys obstetrics and deliveries. He is sorking on an advanced degree by distance learning. Vincent is also a poet. http://vinsense1.blogspot.com/
