Her current focus is on alleviation of period poverty as it encroaches on human and women’s rights and slows development progress on Agenda 2063.limited access to menstrual products and services affect girls’ education hence their career opportunities infringing on universal education for all. For girls to stay longer in school, a distributive policy of menstrual products has deemed less effective, hence the need to consider re- distributive policies to offer free sanitary pads in public institutions and favorable WASH facilities. Her aspiration for public sector leadership is a multi- sectoral approach; with government working hand in glove with civil society in public service delivery.
