This is another big achievement for this grassroot woman, who not so many years ago termed her efforts in fighting for the rights of grassroot women as "noise by some small insect in a big forest who will only be heard by a firewood collector or woodcutter if she persisted". It is finally happening, a third acknowledgment of my work in less than one year.

I am receiving this wonderful award 25th June 2011 here in Nairobi which comes along with a trip to San Diego to attend a women conference. I really need to go for this trip to represent the grassroot women, they are yet to reach the levels they should reach because of lack of participation and representation which can only to attributed to poverty and lack of education. I am out to turn the tables of these women who are the majority across the globe.

Kindly support my quest for participation and representation for the grassroot women, a step towards achieving the MDGs.

I am looking for accommodation in San Diego for just one week starting 25th October 2011,I am also seeking for well wishers for my air ticket.

Namaste Anyango

I am so proud to read this in pulse wire. WOW women in this world are really walking ahead inspite of so many obstacles, they are doing it all! The other day i was walking in the street and i heard 2 women speaking- 'women these days are even winning over men's so called bravery, women are doing everything'

yes i too believe that we can do it all, we have emotions, we have feelings, we are sensible, we have never ending love, we have mountains of patience and we can do everything we want!

CONGRATULATIONS for your achievement and i wish you all the very best for your future too.

way to go Anyango:)
