The initiative was launched at a brunch rightfully titled ​The Power Of Her​, as it saw powerful and influential women gather at The Trademark Hotel to witness and participate in this launch.

Laura Ekumbo, Aleya Kassam & Anne Moraa of the LAM Sisterhood move the attendees with powerful poetry.

The Sustainable Livelihoods Initiative aims to raise Ksh. 5 Million this year. In this light, the brunch was the first of a series that seeks to gather smaller groups with high influence with a common and joint aim to raise the dignity of displaced women and children.


All funds pledged and contributed will go toward furthering UNHCR activities aimed at empowering the refugee women such as business, vocational and entrepreneurial training; cash grants & market networks.

    How can I be part of the team,worked with IOM Medical Health Division as Data Assistant health records for departing refugees, Canadian, USA, UK and Australia cases but contract ended due to down sizing and funding issues. I am really passionate about vulnerable groups of refugees specifically women,children and unaccompanied minors. I currently hold a M.A in International Relations from United States International University (USIU-AFRICA)
