Kenyan Women in The USA popularly known as KWITU has made a major milestone after launching a Women Magazine.
The launch that took place during their 2018 Annual Gala in Atlanta Georgia was a memorable one having been graced by high profile Kenyans in the USA. In attendance was Kenya’s ambassador to US His Exc. Robinson Njeru Githae and Real Housewives of Atlanta reality TV star Shamea Morton known as Mumbi Mwangi.
KWITU started just like any other Facebook group but has turned to be instrumental as it is an umbrella organization that provides an interaction platform for Kenyans living in the diaspora drawn from Canada and US.
Under this year’s annual reunion theme “Unity and integrity Among the Kenyans Living in the Diaspora” Amb. Githae heaped praise on the organization urging the Kenyans to insure their health, life and property to secure their hard earned investments.
“Sometimes something happens in your life and it becomes a tragedy, and it should not. You fall sick for one month and end up losing your house, car or other properties, all because you were not prepared,” he said.
KWITU whose major aim is to address social issues affecting women has had huge achievements in helping women in and the community at large in times of need. The issues range from drug abuse, education, single parenthood, mental illness and suicide among others.
Under the leadership of the organization’s president Ms. Lily Oketch Richards, the organization aims at impacting the society positively. During the reunion, KWITU’S Vice President Mary Kimari was honored with a peace award from the organization and Amb. Githae.
