Champion of Local Democracy: Jenifer Wakhugu

"- My mother used to be a rural woman with no exposure, but in the last 30 years she was able to join the local political leadership as a woman council at the district level and her life drastically changed. This inspired me to support any efforts that promote local democracy and women’s economic empowerment." We are honered to present Jenifer Wakhugu, in our series of personal portraits of people who are playing a significant role in the development of local democracy where they live.
