MEET THE TEAM
Susanna first visited Muhaka Village, Kenya in January 2012 as a volunteer teacher. There she met Rachel, the only female teacher at Muhaka Secondary School who explained how many girls and women in Muhaka lacked access to sanitary pads - and Goods for Girls was born!
In 2013, Susanna was named as the Australian Women’s Weekly’s ‘Woman of the Future’ for her work with Goods for Girls. She was the Australian delegate for the World Association of Girl Guides and Girls Scouts to the 54th United Nations Commission into the Status of Women, and is a former UNICEF Australia Young Ambassador. She is currently a primary school teacher in Sydney, Australia.
Susanna travels back to Kenya regularly to evaluate Goods for Girls’ project work.
