Mwende Nyakiaro Njuguna
Nyakiaro likes to think of herself as a Communication Specialist, with a varied work portfolio that includes Human Resource Management, Finance and Budgeting and Administration; all skills gained from her education in undergrad and Masters level, and working with the UN for almost 10 years. Her fervor for Africa is immense; what Tom Fischer is doing in terms of training the workforce and employing greater skills on Africans around the continent is very in-line with the AU’s Agenda 2063, whose broad document, is a call to action to all Africans (leaders and citizens), to “Catalyse an Education and Skills revolution ….. to build knowledge, human resources, capabilities and skills for the African century”. Her belief is that Tom Fisher is answering to that call, and her pride is to be very much a part of this calling, doing her part in this corner of Africa. Nyakiaro is based in Johannesburg, South Africa.
