A teacher, author, mother and an inspired human being with the simple purpose to make a difference – with some style and some smile! 🙂
With a background in English, Education and Psychology, I am the Founder and Director of Raising Education Within Africa, an organisation that seeks to empower young people to rise above the ordinary, I work with teachers, parents, children and educational organisations developing reading and literacy programmes.
Alongside parent & teacher trainings (in literacy, parenting, nutrition and child development), classes for children and consultancy work, we also operate a unique and specialised nursery school, Little Einsteins, as well as a Parenting and Play programme called SensoBaby, all of which take place at our Education Centre.
Over a period of six years, REWA has developed into a well-reputed organisation that is known to raise the standards and quality of education and we continue to work as centre of excellence in the field of education and child development that transforms communities. In 2016, I was recognised by our country, through the Bot50 Changemaker awards, as a Changemaker in Education and received an award to celebrate and honour REWA’s work. Furthermore, I have been selected as a Global Leader in Early Childhood through the World Forum Foundation.
Having ventured into the enchanting world of writing for children, my first children’s book, An Elephant’s Tale, is now on shelves and available online with a second title out in 2017.
I love what I do and do what I love, but no job is greater than being MUM to the most delightful little girl – Aanavi, and practicing all my creative and innovative educational/parenting ideas with her.
