Hollywood actor Idris Elba’s wife Sabrina Dhowre Elba is in the country on official business.
Sabrina is in the country in her official capacity as the UN Goodwill Ambassador for International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).
“With over 75 per cent of Kenya’s estimated 48 million people living in rural areas, Elba will experience first-hand the impact that IFAD investments are having on the lives of rural communities, especially women and girls,” reads an excerpt of the press release.
Mrs Elba’s first stop was in Embu where she gushed about our beautiful country as she interacted with Embu county farmers to talk about climate change and how it affects them.
“We spent the day on the field with primary in beautiful Kenya which is my second home. It’s been really enlightening to see what I have always believed in that the rural community in nations and in continents like Africa work really hard if not harder than everywhere else,” she said.
“Climate change is hitting African farmers the hardest of all. Being an IFAD Goodwill Ambassador gives me an important opportunity to amplify the voices of women and girls in rural areas,” she added.
Mrs Elba also doubles as a super model and actress.
