Getry Agizah Anguva was born in Western Kenya in the Kakamega County. She was the 7th child born to her parents, but her father was a polygamist with two other wives (her mother was the 3rd wife). Her father died when she was 8-years old and her stepbrother sold their property, leaving her mother to struggle to care for her and her siblings. These early years of struggle shaped Getry and helps her to see the suffering of those around her. Now, the parent of 2 biological children and one adopted daughter, she is compelled to help other children born into difficult marriages.
