“2017 NGWL winner selected by our office in Nairobi. As the first female graduate from her village – Turbi, Anna applied for the NGWL Award ready to empower girls and women in pastoralist communities. She founded an organisation called Qabale Duba Foundation (, in September 2016, whose main focus is to empower girls and women in pastoralists communities, promote maternal health and safe motherhood, provide mentorship programs in village schools, and stand as a champion against harmful cultural practices like Female Genital Mutilation and early marriage. Qabale Duba’s flagship project is PAPA (Pad and Panties) aimed at supplying panties and re-usable pads to girls in remote village schools and women who have no access to these basic necessities. Congratulations Anna! This is a wonderful initiative and we wish you the best of luck in achieving the goals of your foundation. #nextgenerationwomenleaders #NGWLAward”
