Former rugby star Dennis Ombachi has wowed netizens following his move to feed street families with expensive, delicious food.
Ombachi, 30, is a Kenyan rugby sevens player. He competed for Kenya at the 2012 Summer Olympics.
He also was a member of the squad that competed at the 2013 Rugby World Cup Sevens in Russia.
Good Kenyan Foundation
Through the Good Kenyan Foundation, Ombachi has been mentoring and empowering youth from underprivileged homes, mentoring them to transition into colleges, universities, entry-level jobs, and start-up micro-enterprises.
He says that over 120 youths have been empowered since its establishment in 2017.
In a short video clip that has gone viral on social media, Ombachi is filmed preparing chapatis and chicken stew in the garden.
A majority of netizens who took to his post were amazed by his superb cooking skills.
Touch and transform lives
Ombachi said that he was out to touch and transform the lives of the most underprivileged people in society.
"In the end, it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished. It’s about who you’ve lifted, who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve given back. A simple comfort food recipe that can feed and please a crowd!" Ombachi captioned the video clip posted on his official Twitter handle.
Ombachi has been urging netizens to support his initiative.
"To celebrate Good Kenya Foundation fourth birthday, we have birthday boxes to gift your loved ones, hand made by the youth and filled with products from supportive brands," he wrote on his Twitter handle.

Celebrated media personality Julie Gichuru lauded him for the move on what she termed as leading by example.
"Incredibly in so many ways. So much to learn from this. Thank you for your work and the learning that we get from this," Gichuru wrote.
Supporting the street kids
Another social media user identified as Nasasira Tindimwebwa asked Ombachi to tell her how he came up with the idea of supporting the street kids.
"What was the creamy stuff you added to the chicken? And how did you get started? With the feeding station idea? I want to begin. I am just scared to do it alone. Blessings from Uganda," she said.
Another tweep, Patricia Bentley, asked Ombachi if he has ever thought of selling the food and donating the money from the sales to the needy.
"This is amazing. Have you ever thought of selling that which you made maybe to construction workers, matatu drivers, nurses on the go or the like and then the money made to help feed the needy? It could be a great investment. Either way, impressive," she tweeted.
