Nairobi, Kenya -- Honorary doctorate awarded by Strathmore University

On Friday, June 24, Olga Marlin, one of the first women who arrived in Kenya to begin the apostolic work of Opus Dei there, received a doctorate in Literature honoris causa from Strathmore University. The new doctor was born in New York on November 12, 1934, and graduated from Trinity College, Dublin, in 1956, with a Master of Arts degree. In 1957 she received a Diploma in Education from University College, Dublin, and in 1960 moved to Kenya. Her desire to instruct African women led her to begin, together with other women, Kianda College in 1961, a secretarial college open to women of all races, which in 1993 became part of Strathmore University. Dr. Marlin also fostered many initiatives for the promotion of women in Kenya, Uganda, and Nigeria. The Kianda Foundation has given rise to Kibondeni College, Kimlea Girls Technical Training Centre, Tewa Training Centre and many other initiatives for the development of women. In 2002 she published To Africa with a Dream, with the story of her calling to Opus Dei and the beginning of its apostolic work in Kenya. The book has since gone through several printings and has been translated into a number of different languages.
