My Vision

A secured future where girls and boys alike are given enabling environment to achieve their potentials, gain more control over their lives and being able to contribute to the development of their communities.

I have always wanted a situation where the government will see civil society organizations as complementary partners rather than competitors. Collective responsibility is the key to sustainable development that is culture sensitive and gender inclusive.
