Having an offline World Pulse circle has always been my dream. We interact a lot online but hardly meet, yet we are in the same countries or regions.
On the 23rd of February, we did create a Kenyan Circle of World Pulse. Currently we have 6 members, Mahnaz Harrison, Saum Idd, Hellen Kyambi, Brownkey Abdullahi, Leah Okeyo and Immaculate Amoit.
The Circle is meant to cement and strengthen our online sisterhood while giving us the opportunity to work together, share experiences and create visibility for our work and World Pulse off line by having circle events.
Thursday February 8th 2018 is one day I will ever live to remember. My day started on a very busy note; with keeping an appointment for my driver’s license renewal to visiting some corporate organisations to lobby for support towards our Girls project in preparation for the International Women’s Day. The scourging sun did not help matters, hence I got home completely fagged out.
Empowerment Through Art (ETA) is an awareness campaign for women, children and for aspiring artists It gives art workshop and art therapy for distressed women victim-survivors of all forms of human rights violations, especially the migrant women workers all over the world.
Personally, Painting is my meditation, diary, and my main weapon in amplifying women’s voice. I use my imagination and creativity using social artistry to create impact and be a voice for the voiceless women in our society.
