In January 1980, the Missionary Benedictines of Tutzing started a new foundation at Nairobi, Kenya. Over the years, it experienced astonishing growth, not only outwardly but also in the internal establishing of the community, and regarding its engagement in the different missionary areas. Additional missionaries who joined us from Germany, the Philippines and South Korea, contributed to the internationality of the community. The many young women who joined in came from different African countries such as Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Angola and Nigeria. This historical glance back is a first attempt to describe the deeply rooted evolution of the Congregation of the Missionary Benedictine Sisters of Tutzing in Kenya.
