In the late 1950s, Opus Dei sought to begin apostolic work in Africa. A group of young women from various countries moved to Kenya with the aim of starting a school, one open to women of all races and beliefs, the first of its kind. Olga Marlin, who was one of those young women, tells the story of how the womens' faith in their mission was sustained despite obstacles and ultimately bore fruit.


Olga Marlin was born in New York City on November 12, 1934 and studied modern languages at Trinity College Dublin, from which she received her MA degree in 1956. She also holds a H.Dip.Ed. from University College Dublin. Ms. Marlin is a founding member of Kianda School, Nairobi, Kenya, which started as Kianda Secretarial College. It was the first multi-racial girls' school in East Africa. She is also a member of the Strathmore University Council.

I was overwhelmed by my responsibility for this little group just arriving to start working on an unfamiliar continent…
