Our greatest asset

our people and community


Our team is an amazing group of individuals who work together towards a common goal. We are a dedicated, hardworking, and versatile team that believes in achieving success through collaboration and mutual support.

We strongly hold the belief that East African women and girls deserve organizations that are not only dedicated to their cause but are also led by individuals who intimately comprehend their unique experiences and challenges. This unwavering conviction has led us to commit significant resources and support to empower the IIEA (Institute for East African Advocacy) to evolve into an independent and fully autonomous partner in the relentless struggle for period equality in the region. We recognize that true change and progress stem from those who have walked the same path, and by fostering the growth of IIEA, we aim to ensure that local voices are at the forefront of this vital movement. This investment represents our commitment to creating a more equitable and just society, where women and girls in can access the necessary resources, education, and support they deserve to lead healthy and dignified lives.
