Great Love


 “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” Mohandas Gandhi

Rose Mapendo is proof that a name can truly embody the person. Her last name means “great love” in Swahili. A former refugee who suffered horrific personal loss, Ms. Mapendo is determined to help others who have suffered such abuse. She is reaching out to others- this working single mother of ten children who had to move a world away, learn to read and write and navigate an alien culture.  Her photo belongs next to the word “hero” in dictionaries!
