I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechatronics Engineering from the Jomo Kenyatta University (JKUAT) in Kenya.
I have over 4 years of experience in the community development sector, specifically focusing on project management, sustainable development and volunteerism. Being one of the Co-founders and Director of Operations for Volunteers for Kenya (V4K), I work on implementation of sustainability projects in children’s homes and needy schools. This ranges from construction of information hubs (libraries, computer laboratories, and engineering hubs) and renovation of facilities to aiding in the development of financial stability projects at the homes to reduce their reliance on donations.
Apart from being a volunteer, I am a YALI fellow and alumni and currently, the lead organizer for TEDxYouth@Parklands, an annual event bringing top youth change makers in Kenya together! Check out www.tedxyouthparklands.com for more information.
Over this year, I hope to start making “Solutions for Africans by Africans” by incorporating and implementing localized engineering solutions as sustainability projects in needy communities.
I am inspired by the thought of future generations that will be empowered, changed and uplifted through the work I do and through every action I take.
My message to Kenyans “Improving lives does not cost a fortune. Improving your community is your responsibility. Only you can start the conversations, only you can make the change! Every small bit counts!”
