I am a humanitarian and development professional. Having served in some of the war ravaged and fragile parts of the world during my service in the United Nations (UN) and the Red Cross, I am passionate about making a difference in the lives of the most vulnerable. I have seen firsthand many human tragedies and triumphs from which I have learnt important lessons and I strive to uphold human dignity.As the Representative of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) to Kenya, I am leading efforts to reduce the unacceptably high maternal death rates in Kenya and firmly believe that "no woman should die giving life". UNFPA places a spotlight on the challenges faced by adolescent girls in Kenya which includes child marriage, FGM (Female Genital Mutilation), sexual and gender based violence. UNFPA works tirelessly with their partners to ensure that every girl exercises her rights, has access to reproductive health services and is able to achieve her full human potential.Join me to advance humanity.
