She holds a Master of Arts degree in Strategic Management from the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology, a Bachelors’ Degree in Business Administration (Human Resource Management), from Kenya Methodist University and a Diploma in Business Administration from Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology. She is currently pursuing a Master of Science in Sustainable Development from the University of London and has also attended several short courses and trainings in proposal writing, Monitoring and Evaluation, Children’s Rights, Corporate governance among others.

Clarah is a project specialist, a trainer, a mentor and coach and a lover of advancing children’s agenda. With 16 years of experience working with both local Non-Governmental Organizations and International Organizations, she has gained extensive experience in program management and implementation in the domains of scholarships management, economic security development and social protection, community-based recovery and resilience programs and emergency response.

She has worked before with several organizations on providing guidance and mentorship to girls and piloting the concept of producing re-usable pads to be used in primary and secondary schools in Kakamega County. She was also instrumental in setting up of a vocational training unit in ACCES (African Canadian Education Society) Kenya that was training girls on making of re-usable pads for distributing in their several non-formal education centers.

She believes that education is the only equalizer and quotes Horace Mann (1848, as cited in Education and Social Inequity, n.d.) who succinctly states that, “Education, then, beyond all other divides of human origin, is a great equalizer of conditions of  men, the balance wheel of the social machinery.” She therefore believes communities should be able to come together to give help and hope to end period poverty in developing countries like Kenya. She is delighted to join a global movement of equity change makers and believes that her experience and skills will contribute greatly to the success of Days for Girls Kenya.
