Phionah Musumba on Bread and Roses, Feminist Radio Program on KBOO


Girls education matter! This Friday, Phionah Musumba discussed the barriers to girls' education in rural Kenya and what her organization, the Malkia Empowerment Network through The Center for Disadvantaged Girls (CDG) is doing to empower girls.

"The Centre of Disadvantaged Girls has a vision to create a haven where girls, women and youth in the society, especially the community around us can identify with their very own, and together prepare themselves to face the world responsibly not only financially, but also educationally, health wise and socially."

Phionah says: "I have a burning passion for the needy and less privileged in society, not because I have much, since I got nothing, but because I have been through a lot of suffering all my life, as a young girl and even as a mother."

She envisions a future where "women don't have to walk tens of kilometres to fetch a few litres of water, a future where women will be given equal rights to education and leadership posts as men, where our kids don't die for lack of food and medical attention."

Phionah Musumba is the Founder/Executive Director, Centre for Disadvantaged Girls & Malkia Empowerment Network
