Description:

Featuring a conversation with: Megan Singh Sidhu, Director of Philanthropic Initiatives, Heshima Kenya


Heshima Kenya was established to address a crucial gap in care for unaccompanied and separated refugee girls and young women in Nairobi, Kenya. Adolescent refugee girls are particularly vulnerable to exploitation and abuse, especially sexual and gender-based violence. Heshima Kenya provides a safe community for these young women to learn, grow, feel protected and become leaders.

We hope that you can join us for dinner and a discussion!!
