Former Citizen TV news anchor Janet Mbugua has yet again received global recognition after she was named gender champion by the International Gender Champions Network.
The International Gender Champions Network focuses on personalities making gender equality a reality in their areas of influence such as journalism and entertainment fields.
Alongside other global leaders, the Inua Dada Foundation founder was hailed for her continued effort to address gender-related issues and commended for her role in mentoring over 250 young people who help in the fight against Gender-based violence.
Speaking on this achievement which serves as another milestone in her projects, Janet says that she never pictured that her foundation and works would receive such honor but this never stopped her from pushing her agenda.
“A few years ago, I wouldn’t have imagined that I’d be getting such an accolade today, but I also knew there was a shift in me and I could no longer be silent on matters of inequality.
Equality, justice, and fairness matter to me and they should matter to all of us. No one’s gender, race, religion or affiliation should deny them their rights.” She wrote in her post
Through her foundation, Janet has managed to make an impact in the education sector [as part of her achievements] as she offers solutions to issues affecting school girls such as lack of sanitary towels, suitable sanitation facilities, and access to basic health care and support services.
