Welcome! - from Community Champion, Phionah

Phionah Musumba is the brains behind Malkia Foundation and the Centre for Disadvantaged Girls. We are based in rural Western Kenya. We empower girls with education and women with skills for enterprise development for gainful or self employment.

My interest in being a community champion for the group is borne of the need to further amplify the voices of the women at the grassroots worldwide, who are actually always on top of the list when it comes to dire need of economic empowerment.

My intention is to bring to the fore the challenges that grassroots women leaders undergo every day in their journey to empower girls, the youth and women in their communities , my hope being that sooner than later, they will be empowered themselves economically, enough to carry out their duties without worrying about their economic inadequacies.

I invite fellow grassroots women leaders to walk with me hand in hand in this labour of love journey for our fellow women by sharing their ideas, aspirations and visions for the change we want to see in our communities, to make the world the best place for tomorrow’s generations to live.
