About Me: 

I'm a single mother in her early thirties of 11year old daughter. After my high school completion i trained as a hotelier and worked as a casual for one year. The experience was frustrating to me and therefore decided to begin venturing into volunteer job with the youth. I enjoyed empowering the youth on Reproductive Health Issues, being that they are the most sexually active and were at high risk contracting HIV/AIDS. We worked together in communities through theatre and focused group discussions, something that also led us to identify sustainable projects for the youth.

I was on the process trained on Alternatives to Violence Programme, that has seen me in places with a diverse group of people including the prisons staff, inmates and police administration. I'm greatly involved and will invite any questions on my experience.

My Passions: 
Assisting the needy
My Vision for the Future: 
To greatly involve myself in community work.
My Areas of Expertise: 
Facilitating, training, leadership
My Languages: 
English, Kiswahili
