Please share something about yourself, your work, and what draws you to the Inclusion Network online community.
I am a married mother of three. I direct a national service program whose members provide personal assistance services to individuals with disabilities, but my program grant funding is coming to an end in September; and I am looking for other opportunities to manage programs and projects that focus on individuals with disabilities, but enfused with gender equity.
I am drawn to this online community because by virtue of being a Kenyan American living in the US, I have been exposed to the kind of differential treatment (some call it racism) that I though only existed in text books. I am hoping that by being a part of this community, I can do my part to speak up against differential treatment.
What part of the world do you live in? Would you share a bit about your neighbourhood?
I live in South East Atlanta, GA United States. My neighborhood is predominantly made up of single family two level beautiful homes, that have now been under water for the past couple of years due to the economy.
My family and i live on a cul de sac which kind of gives us a sense of security as we know each other by sight! We have lived here for almost 12 years and although we have ten homes on the street, I only know two of the neighbors by name. What a shame!
What would you like to contribute to this community? What would you like to receive?
I would like to contribute my ideas, my experiences and learn from everyone.

What are some of the questions you'd like to explore, or conversations you'd like to have with others in this community?
What can we do as a community to reach out to our fellow brothers and sisters with disabilities in Africa, so that they too can advocate for themselves?
