Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to advocate for the sustainable, all-round inclusion of women/girls in the extractives/mining industry in Kenya.
It's all part of making a better world.
The ultimate goal is to have the policy in the Kenya Mining Act 2016, which lacks the place/position of women and girls
From the above I will be able to eradicate:
The non-inclusion of women in decision making tables concerning mining and extractives
The general harassment and abuse of women in the sector
The pay/benefit discrepancies between men and women in the industry
Non clarity of value benefit chain
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by women and girls in the extractive industry in Kenya, at a large and small scale platforms
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Institution of policy into law - Kenya mining act 2016
Sustainable inclusion of women in decision making and economic value chain
Eradication of gender harassment and Bias in the sector
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
1. when the policy is instituted into the Kenya Mining Act
2. when women begin to be taken as stakeholders at all levels of the industry
3. when women report fairness and record own developments
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
