At a very tender age, Knight had a vision to change the lives of the vulnerable girls around her hence, her dad encouraged her to specialize her first degree in Bachelor of Arts; Social Work at the University Of Nairobi. Following the death of her father on June 1, 2012 that challenged her well-being and Vision, Daughters Of Kenya was born as she states, “I questioned myself if life had totally changed without one parent, how would it be to the Orphaned children?” After a period of three years of exploration and study, Knight established the Kenyan Daughter Trust Network in 2016 which later changed its name to Daughters of Kenya with a vision of Empowering, Improving and Changing the lives of the Vulnerable Girls and Young Mothers in Kenya. Daughters Of Kenya is governed by 7 Board of Directors where Knight seats as the Board Secretary.
