Bio

About Me

I am a women's empowerment advocate and an environmental activist. I am the Founder and Program Director of Women Initiative for Sustainable Environment (WISE), a grassroots based Non Profit Organization that promotes constructive environmental ideals by empowering women to become environmental stewards and peace builders. With a professional background (1st and 2nd degree qualification) in Urban and Regional Planning, and as an environmentalist, I have participated in many training programs and projects. To date, I render environmental consultancy services and love writing on environmental issues. For me, realizing the noble course of a safe and just environment goes beyond personal interests or gains, as serving a cause is an opportunity to serve people. My hobbies include research, writing and cookery. I have keen interest in humanitarian and enterprise development activities and I am learning by the day to meet the demands of my work.
