Lindy Wafula,
CEO and Founder, Project Africa

Lindy winner of the prestigious Africa MDG Achievers Award is an active politician in her home country of Kenya, where she is determined through her work and through her organization Project Africa to help to empower women and girls. Her talk will examine this issue and also tell of her struggle, having lost both her parents to HIV/AIDS, denied her right to inherit, but expected to take on all responsibilities in the upbringing of her siblings. She will look at the future of young women in Kenya and share their challenges and hopes and so inspire women everywhere to believe in themselves and their power to create a better world for themselves, their households, their communities and their nations.
