Getry Agizah Anguva works with Friends United Meeting as Programme Coordinator for the work of Friends Church Peace Team. She has participated in many types of peace work, including the Alternatives to Violence Program, Trauma Healing and Reconciliation, Mediation, Civic Education, and the Nonviolence Movement for Social Change.
Getry’s will and heart are in peace work. She has spent the past 15 years working for peace around her nation of Kenya, and outside Kenya in countries like Rwanda, Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Southern Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, China, South Africa, Guatemala, and Ireland. She has also traveled within the USA to raise support for FCPT, visiting Quaker Churches and Meetings in many of the states. Her hobbies are traveling, doing reconciliation work, and helping her society to know real peace.
Getry says: “As darkness gets closer, so worries get stronger and all the time we think about the risks of Peace Ministries. I feel blessed as a person because it has been a testimony and I survived a lot. And this is my motivation to keep on keeping on.”
Getry is married to Joseph Thuita and blessed with three children: Dennah Khasiala, Daniel Njuguna, and Esther Khaluhi.
