The book, which will feature over 200 women, is meant to shine like stars in an indigo sky, stirring up individual glimmers of hope in a landscape often marred by bad news. These women are driven by the conviction that by drawing from what lies within them – no matter their sphere of endeavor – they can make a difference in the lives of others.
The book will cover the period before independence right up to present-day Kenya spanning various fields – from freedom fighting to the corporate world; aviation to governance; the arts and health to business and justice; education and sports to politics and human rights. Their noteworthy achievements will be captured as an important part of the Kenyan story.
Each woman who will be honored in this book will have been motivated to use her talent(s), abilities and unique opportunities to build a legacy beyond mere career; this is what separates success from relevance. Celebrating the spirit of the transformer through an examination of what makes these great women tick is our way of encouraging more Kenyans to sacrificially offer what they carry within, and walk in their footsteps.
