Her vision is to transmute Africa’s story through empowerment using a comprehensive child development approach to programming, that is evidence based and Afrocentric.
She believes this will result in a positive outcome in Africa, that touches not only on socioeconomic development but also humanity.
This fearless lady has a successful record of accomplishments covering community and international projects.
Mtoto news is my passion project. It is a new media house that increases children visibility on social, political and economic matters. This is achieved through social media, a YouTube channel and through documentaries.
We work with various organizations on advocacy, education and wellness of children.
We have had huge impact through Mtoto news. The community and organizations continuously contact us on matters to do with children. Several policies have also been developed.
Mtoto News has become a leading company in use of digital technology to improve the lives of children and currently supporting a number of regional organization in use of digital technology to effect change.

Jennifer loves running. I wonder if there’s some Kalenjin blood somewhere in her. She’s also a part of the worship team in her church and loves animations.
I love playing with my children. It is always good to connect with that child that is in all of us.
I agree. Does dancing in the rain count as a childish habit. I can’t seem to shake off this habit.
