HELLO, my name is Linda, 23 years old. From my own personal experience in the community where i come from, i have seen women and children suffer from domestic violence to the point where they have to flee and seek safety away from the places they call home.
It has therefore been my passion to find a way to help these women and children lead more flourishing lives where they can be able to stay at their homes without fear of the unknown.
I therefore intend to start a foundation, NAWIRI FOUNDATION to be able to help these women and children not just in my community but globally too since domestic violence is a global issue that needs to be addressed.
Before doing this, I intent to study a Master's degree in International Education and Development as I believe this will equip me with knowledge and experience in handling matters that are related to policy formulation and implementation, policies that address inequality globally and also understanding and engaging with some of the world's most pressing issues such as the ones Nawiri Foundation will be focused on.
Together with partner organizations and other goodwill ambassadors and networks that i hope to build through MY MUN confrences and other platforms, i believe that this mission will be a success geared towards achievement of SDG 4 and 1, 3, 5 and 2.
NAWIRI FOUNDATION will not just address issues of domestic violence but will include other issues such as education for children, hunger elimination, internally displaced persons and refugees , sexual and gender based violence.
Funds donated will go towards funding my Tuition Fee at The University of Sussex. I have received my offer letter from the University which I must accept or decline the offer before the 1st of September. Time is not on my side as at now since I have to pay a deposit of the tuition fee and then apply for VISA.
I strongly believe that with change comes difference and through your donations, this change will make a huge impact globally.
