NAIROBI CITY, GREENSPAN, KENYA, November 28, 2021 / -- At a private ceremony held at the Safari Club Hotel in Nairobi, Kenya, Nancy Wamaitha received the iChange Nations™ Global Messenger of Hope Award. Nancy was awarded for her contribution, continued commitment, and dedication to empowering and elevating the lives of others.

Nancy advocates and supports girls' education, growth and development. Nancy believes that the most effective investment that a nation can make both socially and economically is to educate the girl child. According to Nancy, educating a girl will increase political and civic participation, lower levels of sexual harassment, raise economic productivity, lower infant and maternal mortality, decrease child marriage, and reduce the transmission of HIV/AIDS. Nancy is the founder of Tunaweza Empowerment Foundation. The foundation helps under-served girls stay in the classroom by distributing environmentally friendly sanitary pads and providing additional educational services and mentorship. With this scalable yet simple solution, Kenyan girls can meet the promise of their future.

As a proud mother of two children, a son and a daughter, she also boasts a rich education background and holds papers from various universities. Nancy has a MBA in Strategic Management (Daystar University), A Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration (BBA, Marketing Option) from Kenya Methodist University, and holds a Diploma in Business Administration from The Kenya Institute of Management.

Nancy is known for her initiatives, good planning, and implementation of projects. These skills have open the doors to various boards. Currently, she is the Chair at Within Foundation. Within Foundation is a dynamic non-partisan trust at the forefront of the region's civic life. She also chairs the board of Precious Ones, a CBO dealing with vulnerable people in informal settlements and focuses on sustainable development goals by imparting skills through training and mentorship. The CBO is also focused on ending poverty by educating and empowering young people.

In addition, Nancy is the Vice-Chair of Water is Life, an international NGO that seeks to deploy state-of-the-art technology around the world to help resolve the world water crisis. She is also an Associate Member (AMKIM) - Kenya Institute of Management, a Rotarian for Nairobi North, and a member of Naivasha Sports Club where she plays golf during her free time.

Donald Toldson of the United States sponsored the Global Messenger of Hope Award and was on hand to acknowledge Nancy's work as her family looked on with pride and admiration. The award was presented by iChange Nations™ Special Envoy Dr. Ruben West.
