A Masai woman, married to a chagga, with two beautiful daughters, have been a host family for volunteers for years now. I work with children, and women empowerment. I love music and making new friends. Learning new thinks is part of me. As a Masai woman i passed through a lot of challenges of which it was through thick and thin that i fought those challenges. Lack of education to girl child was part of it. So my motto is Backward Never, Forward Ever.
