Moses Omukunda Makachia

Team Member | Kakamega Kenya

Moses Omukunda Makachia, a community development specialist and facilitator, is thrilled to help bolster communities in Kakamega by addressing the issue of period poverty. He is skilled in identifying and solving environmental and health problems affecting communities – and even runs his own organization, Shisaba Water Resource Initiative (SHWARI), for this purpose.

Through this work, he discovered the opportunity to serve young girls in schools by providing washable, environmentally-friendly menstrual pads.
