This picture is of our strong local leader, Dorcus Parit. She is a wife, mother, daughter, sister, teacher, advocate, leader, and friend. She is on the front lines fighting for women and young girls rights to a full education, to stop the practice of FGM (Female Genital Mutilation) and child marriage, she cares for children that are in abusive situations, and she brings health to communities that lack clean water and basic needs.
Dorcus is incredibly well respected all the way up to the Kenyan Parliament and has been recognized for her work with her community. We know that as she continues to use her voice and life to lead, lasting change will come and the future for women in Kenya will be bright.
We are very proud of Dorcus!
