I got interested in MTG when I visited my cousin in Kilifi and felt encouraged when I saw girls playing football and taking up leadership roles. I later registered and started playing football at Mnarani league field. The most intesting part is that I had never played football in my life and I was not used to seeing girls playing football for fun with commitment. I became a resource centre volunteer after the internship and enjoyed my time with the children, volunteers, staff members and the community who visited the resource centre to study and use the computers. I got more experience in working with the community and I can say that I learnt how to work with children through MTG. I have also gained experience in many areas especially in monitoring and evaluation during my life as a volunteer.The organization has been a turning point in my life due to several trainings I underwent like video editing, child protection policy, Participatory Rural Approaches and report writing. I also secured a job as the assistant monitoring and evaluation.
I like my job, especially writing the monthly newsletters, data collection and photography because I feel motivated when I hear girls' tell their stories on how their lives changed through their involvement in MTG activities. I also feel good when my pictures are used in social media, print media and reports. I like the way MTG handles girls and how they are empowered without discrimination. I wish MTG all the best and hope that it will extend to other counties to empower more girls in future.
