Biography

Am from pastoralist communities living in Kenya. I am a mother, a gender champion, I have more than 10 years of experience working with non-governmental organizations, I have been passionate about championing women and girls' rights since I was a young girl. I grew up in an atypical traditional culture where women are regarded as children, they were not allowed to own properties or make any decision. I learnt to voice out issues, I learnt to speak out on the right of other girls and myself. I have learnt, too, that women's rights are human rights regardless of age, tribe, color.

I have been given a chance to work in many organizations to integrate gender component into the programs.
