How the employee got involved and why

In 2013 I went to a workshop in Kenya and I could verify first-hand the reality that was lived there. From that moment something changed on me and grew the needed to do productive things for the disadvantaged population. I try to contribute my humble grain of sand for the right to education and the social justice. A long all this years my involvement has increase until to create a NGO with a group of people committed to equality, education and development. That is how ZAWADI was born in 2018.

I am a founding member of the NGO ZAWADI. We have different kind of projects, all of them emerge from the needs of the population most disadvantage in Kenya: Awareness project. Project of construction of latrines to improve the health in the schools and avoid diseases. Scholarships for children in danger of exclusion.
