Terry Shiundu

About Me: 

I am a born again christian, Pastor's wife and Mother of 3 adorable children. I have an MBA (Executive) in Human Resource Management and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics, Political Science and Sociology. I have also recently completed a basic Kenya Sign Language course, to be able to reach also the Deaf community and easily communicate with our deaf staff. I'm a very outgoing, social person with unyielding integrity and a passion to learn new things and travel the world. I love to mentor people and believe that everyone has something to offer, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem. I'm a Human Resources professional and actively involved in church ministry in various roles.

I am also an entrepreneur, running a company with my husband that empowers young people economically in the rural areas of Kisumu, Kakamega, Mumias and Busia (Kenya). We also train the youth with business skills to enable them establish their own businesses. Our main target has been the bicycle taxi operators.

I am so saddened by the recent statistics on HIV prevalence among youth in Kenya and my vision is to see the young people and especially girls fully aware of the risks, to help them understand that they can stand by themselves and excel. They don't need to sell their bodies or have married men around them for them to be somebody, i want to be a mentor to these girls, to show the way and help them through the problems they face. We're going out to schools, speaking the word and believe our the message will be heard and a life will be changed!

My Passions: 
Mentoring, bringing out the best in others, especially girls inorder to see them avoid the pitfalls of early pregnancies, HIV/AIDS due to peer pressure!
My Challenges: 
Making people understand who they really are, and that they don't need to depend on anyone to be who they want to be! How to begin the movement & financing it!
My Vision for the Future: 
To see women and girls stand out, having opportunities to excel and most of all to see a generation of youth who are responsible and empowered! A world where everybody's rights are respected!
My Areas of Expertise: 
Human Resource, Administration, leadership and Training
My Languages: 
English, Kiswahili
