The Mother and Wife

She believes that the family is an important unit of society which helps to transmit culture between generations as strong and stable societies, emerge from strong, stable and positive family experiences

…As a mother, I have a growing understanding of how a young girl who is correctly guided can cause tremendous change for the best in her family, community and nation. We are still struggling as a nation because we have underestimated the girl child


The Entrepreneur
