About Me

I co-founded Supporters of the Youth Worldwide (SOY-Worldwide) in 2009. it focuses on: Sexual Reproductive Health Rights, offers technological empowerment, entrepreneurship and business incubation/social social enterprise and disability advocacy.
From 2013 to 2019 I was a pioneer county chief Officer in the devolved government system in Kenya, in Homa Bay County. I was in charge of Energy and Natural Resources for three years (2013-2016) then in Education and ICT (2016-2019), here I managed a staff of 1,800 persons. I am passionate about women and girls issues. During my tenure in the county I carried out mentorship programs for girls and performed training and sensitization meetings for women on taking advantage of government 30% Procurement rule. I also have been running Ramula HIV support Group for 12 years now with an aim if reducing HIV stigma in my community. I believes in the change process, to get rid of old traditions so as to take advantage of the present.
