Sumaya Nakaziba, ETH-U Field Officer  

Hello, I am Kayera Sumaya Nakaziba, social worker by profession with 12 years’ experience working with grassroots projects. I have been working on sexual reproductive and rights among youth, HIV/AIDS response, and maternal and child health including nutrition and child growth monitoring projects. I am the new project Field Officer with Empower to Heal Uganda and the President of Rotaract Club Iganga under Rotary. I am so passionate about community health and development. I believe that empowering community mostly women, girls and youth helps them to understand themselves better and to blossom into well informed, conscientious adults with the ability to manage their own health needs. It is an important time for the world to understand that women are responsible for grooming the coming generations, so empowering them to take ownership of their own health helps them have an informed point of view when raising generations to come. I love to travel and I read a lot of books. I am social and easy to like. I am working with ETH-U because it is a grassroots organization. Who does not enjoy a smile of gratitude from a community member after doing something good for their development? I'm part of the change that our communities need. Happy to meet every one, looking forward to having fun while creating change with everyone in ETH-U.
