About Me

I am the co-founder member of Society Against Negative Exclusion Kenya (SANE-KENYA), a non-governmental organization that endeavors to bring sanity into the society that for a long time has been bedeviled by all kinds of exclusions and discriminations in areas of gender, tribe, religion, age, employment, and politics, among others. Currently I am a consultant with Actionaid International: training on topical issues of Gender Based Violence and Women in Political participation. My latest assignment has been training grassroots women aspirants for various political posts in Kenya as we are gearing to the March 2013 general election. Through this process I have witnessed many challenges that women face to acquire political seats even nominations. This has prompted me to come up with an article. Consequently, I have been involved with HIV/AIDS sensitization. In 2008 I formed HIV support group for women living in my rural area. This has helped many overcome stigma and live positively. I also volunteer my services to the youth through Supporters of the Youth Worldwide (SOY-Worldwide) as i have a passion for the youth. I believe the future is with the youth, shaping them will will bring great development in our society. I am an active member of Peoples Health Movement where I was trained with International Peoples Health University (PHM-IPHU) short course "The Struggle for Health". I endeavor to see a world that incorporate all despite our differences. to give back to the society through voluntary services lack of adequate skills in some areas training, mobilizing and monitoring & evaluation

My Vision

a society free from all forms of discrimination
