I am a single parent with 2 daughters who are fully my responsibility. Their father doesn’t contribute financially , or emotionally, or with any other means. So in this parenthood journey it’s me by myself. Even family wise I don’t have any support from any family member.
My elder daughter who is now 6 had some issues from school since 4 years of age. Teachers complained that she didn’t want to write, she didn’t want to concentrate in class, she didn’t want to sit in one place… like she wasn’t interested in school.

Hundreds of people my age filtering in through the same path I had to walk. This is nerve wrecking I told myself. I had a black pit in my stomach telling me to turn around and run as fast as I could, before I made a fool out of myself. Little did I know that I’d be extremely reluctant to leave this very atmosphere in just a few four days.
Sakina Mukarram Amijee, is a special member of the Facebook group, Super Women of East Africa. She is the brilliant artist behind our super-cool website and Facebook group cover!
Little did we know, apart from her artistic talents, she can quite cook up a storm, when at it!
At SWEA, we began an initiative to feature various NGOs across East Africa, that are tirelessly and selflessly working for the betterment of the East African nations.
It was then, when we came across the work done by The Purple Box, a small initiative started by a young college student, Naureen Gamdust. Naureen started the project last year to provide underprivileged school girls with sanitary pads. A lot of young women could not afford sanitary pads, and as a result, missed out on school days, eventually lagging behind academically.
Given only a 20% survival chance by the doctors in Nairobi, Sonal Ganatra’s funny sense of humor was what emancipated her from the claws of a fatal brain tumor that she was detected with in 1997.
Looking for a quiet safari experience, that is off the beaten track and gives you a better chance to animal viewing, unlike the always-crowded national parks like Serengeti and Ngorongoro? We suggest you consider visiting the Tarangire National Park for a vacation! No more thinking over the idea, July to October makes the best time to visit the national park, so get ready with your cameras, binoculars, wide brimmed hats and safari shorts for an adventure like never before, karibu Tarangire!
