This International Women's Day Karibuni Children are celebrating all the incredible young women who have broken down the barriers of the circumstances they were born into, to complete their education and thrive in impressive careers, supported by Karibuni!
For instance, Zilpah, an alumni of our partner project in Njoro, graduated with a Diploma in Accountancy in 2018. She secured her first job only a few months later at Egerton University in their Crop Management Research Training project, where she is using her accounting skills.
Zilpah is now a Board member at the Njoro project and is involved with supporting other children following the same journey as hers. She says, "It is in my heart to support children under Karibuni in the Njoro project, to help them change their lives and to be like me in the future. This is my way of giving back to the project for what I received since I was young."
We are so proud of how Zilpah has broken the cycle of poverty for herself and is now supporting others to do the same. Thank you Zilpah!' To find out more about Karibuni's work or to make a much needed donation, visit www.karibuni.org.uk by clicking here.
