About Me

You educate a man, you educate a man. You educate a woman, you educate a generation ---> Brigham Young

I started a foundation focused on girls and menstrual health matters, it has led me to where i believe i am supposed to be, providing access to Education for the girl child in some of the most marginalised counties in Kenya.

Together with many other partners we are able to get drop out grils back to school. They drop out for various reasons some of which are: early marriage (to no longer be a liability & expense to the fmaily) FGM, lack of money to pay fees, etc

Focus on education came about because not many girls even dream beyond their current circumstance.

In May 2011 I started a cause for women which I feel very passionate about, please follow Path to Womanhood Foundation www.pathtowomanhood.org

In Dec 2014 Agnes was our first High School graduate, supported by One for you, One for her she was the first in her entire family to finish High school, thats how amazing our girls are and thats how amazing we want them to be. She is truly a role model in her family, and the reason we do what we do.

My Vision

A Kenya where all girls are empowered through quality education to realize their full potential, contribute to transforming societies and bring home an income, where gender equality becomes a reality for women
