Introducing myself and my journal: Quest 2 Excel

About Me:
I am a gender activist, journalist and a mother of two beautiful daughters. In my working career, I have worked for both private and public sector in my country. I have worked for heavyweight corporates like PricewaterhouseCoopers, to the humble but effective organisations like Tanzania Media Women's Association and those in the middle like one of the largest International schools in Africa, the International School of Tanganyika. Throughout the decade of my career I have been actively volunteering or consulting in women empowerment projects, youth support and advocating for the rights of the underprivileged. I passionately believe in the ability of every human being to succeed in life, making a contribution in the community and/or making a difference in the world, this is why I am forever looking for ways to stimulate their quest for excellence.

My Passions:
Community work and leveraging excellence....

My Challenges:
Balancing raising children, study, finances....

My Vision for the Future:
Having or being part of an organisation that empowers the voiceless

My Areas of Expertise:
Journalism, PR, Marketing and Advocacy

I wish to draw your attention to the above journal entry that might be of interest to you. It talks about a Nottingham University project in the U.K. has turned banana waste into an efficient fuel source. The emphasis of the project was on developing a simple technology that can be used in developing countries without the need for a large financial outlay. The fuel bricks are made by hand without needing any mechanical equipment.

Gathering wood for fuel is a time consuming job, mainly done by women who sometimes have to walk over six hours a day to get firewood. They are hoping that this banana fuel might help reduce dependence on wood as an energy source across Africa. They say that they are happy to give the idea away for free and are encouraging people who want to use the idea to get in touch.
