My favorite quote that I try to live by Paulo Coelho that says “The Warrior of light sometimes behaves like water, flowing around the obstacles he encounters. Occasionally, resisting might mean being destroyed and so he adapts to the circumstances. He accepts without complaint that the stones along the path hinder his way across mountains. Therein lies the strength of water. It cannot be shattered by a hammer or wounded by a knife. The strongest sword in the world cannot scar its surface.
I am extremely passionate about menstrual health services and education inclusion of all women and girls in Kenya and Africa as a whole. Due to cultural strains and perceptions women and girls have been left behind when it comes to 100% penetration of sanitary pad access and comprehensive sexual reproductive health. In a time where more Kenyans have better access to internet at 80% penetration than sanitary pads at 33% drives me to change those statistics.
Sanitary pad access should not be for the privilege. We need to work at get sanitary pads to women and girls right at their door step.
Getting ways on how to get the community more involved. By taking ownership of it. As well as fundraising to get the systems in place.
I am really good at assessing strategies and systems.
