story of rebirth

A true story, that of someone born of the dark, finding a light of love and hope.

Besh (whose real name is Duncan Njoroge Waweru) is saved from the street at the age of 8 and begins a new road, the one that today led him to become an educator at the Koinonia Community centers .

Koinonia Community is a community founded in Kenya by the Comboni father Renato Sesana Kizito, in order to assist street children, orphans and other young people in difficulty.

Grande Quercia, in collaboration with Koinonia Community and with the contribution of the Municipality of Rovereto, gave schools the opportunity to bring Besh together with the many students.

After his first trip to Trentino in February 2019, on the occasion of the exhibition dedicated to his life (for information click here), in October 2019 Besh will still be welcomed by many young people and adults, ready to listen to his words. 

This time, however, Besh also traveled to Malta at the headquarters of Great Oak (the twin association of Grande Quercia Italia) and here in a few days he met more than 800 students from Maltese schools.
