About the Millennium Fellow
Nyambura Njani is a dreamer with great ambition. Her interest in social issues was sparked through her work with AIESEC in the University of Nairobi where she got to work with under-privileged communities in Mathare, Nairobi where she became aware of the glaring difference in the quality of life that is created by wealth. Nyambura has a laser focus when she sets her mind on a certain goal.
