It took Isaac a long time before this organization came into being. In July 2007, he was blessed with his first born son Myles and this was a wake-up call. Isaac says one day he looked at the baby Myles, helpless, too little, and just crying for everything and he reflected on similar children back home from poor communities. There was no difference with neither of them nor their demanding needs. The important thing to note here was that majority of those little children were born of poor families were not as lucky as Myles was. Specifically, Myles would get his Diaper changed for a new one while a child born of a poor family in Kenya would get probably 15 – 20 cloth napkins that would last the entire childhood. Such cloth napkins were passed through older brothers or sisters, very emotional to think of it from whatever angle. He decided it was time, and Myles of Great Hopes was born. A long process but officially was launched on October 17th 2009 at Cameron Village Library.
The takeaway from this diaper/napkins story is actually not the diapers/napkins in the real sense, but the need for water to wash those napkins was the issue. Not having enough water to take care of these young children captures a whole range of the importance of water from drinking, to hygiene, to sicknesses, to growing food crops, raring chicken, cattle, economic growth and sustainability among others. Solving the problem from the root cause was very key, and therefore providing clean water was the solution.
