AGE 21 FROM ISAMILO, MWANZA.
Why did you Join Pikilily?
My friend Rosemary, who is also on the programme first told me aboutPikilily. After hearing about their plans for the motorcycle ambulance I knew I wanted to be part of them, as I always wanted to help to take care of people. I wanted to try and train as a nurse, but I couldn’t afford it, so I am really happy that I can help other women by being part of Pikilily.
What did you do before?
Before I joined, I was working in a hotel, but I lost my job due to a family emergency and not being able to take time off. Before that I worked at my uncle’s pharmacy.
What excites you most about Pikilily?
I really like the medical side of the job, as I really want to help people, but I am also excited about riding a motorbike!
