I am a former teacher at Brighton Grammar School and former Head of its Junior School. Currently I am the Bequest Manager of Brighton Grammar School Development Office.

I became involved with WFWIA in 2004 after a student’s mother asked if Brighton Grammar could help with a school in Kibera, called Baraka school. I have been a Board member, member of the Committee of Management and a member of the Finance Committee since 2009.

My dream is to support Women for Women in Africa and Wanawake kwa Wanawake so that we can provide a quality education for as many children as possible that will enable them to achieve their optimum potential. Hopefully those whom we assist will be motivated to do their utmost to help their fellow citizens in Kibera. In time, this will help to eradicate poverty and corruption in Kenya.

I believe that every child has the right to an education.  In Australia we accept this without question, but in Kibera, going to school is just a dream for most.
