What actions are you taking to promote and protect the health and rights of women and young people worldwide?
I am currently a member of a recently launched foundation in Kenya, Afya Kenya Foudation. The foundation addresses health issues that face individuals who live in the rural remote areas and who have no access to health facilities. They provide free medical camps which address acne, jigger infections,typhoid, reproductive health, cancer issues and so on.
My firm will also be addressing reproductive health issues in Kenya and hopefully with the support from local organisations and the government. My focus group will however be high school students and some university students.
What is your vision of lasting change for yourself and for the world's young people?
The world’s young people will be able to get access to sex education from a team of people who will care for them from the bottom of their hearts. They may not be able to feel comfortable to speak to their parents about sexuality but I will make it possible to get all the information they want to know through my firm. I also envision that once they are through with training they shall have confidence to do what gives them joy and also strengthen their relationships with their parents.
If you could tell world leaders one thing, what would it be?
I would urge the world leaders to help the young people in the world to find purpose in their lives.
There are many factors effecting the reproductive health of women and men that need to be addressed. It should no longer be an individual’s drive to bring awareness to the general public but also an initiative from the government. Government officials should begin to act NOW and stop stalling and address issues that are wiping away the general public due to ignorance.
