Margret Monyani:Chairperson

Margret, I hold a Master of Arts Degree in International Relations from Moi University. Currently I work as Lecturer at the Department of Political Science and Public Administration -Moi University. Away from work, I am a lady who is passionate about working with and for people.

As it is known, the best investment anybody can make is investing in people. TYSA captures this well in its mandate and I believe I am honoured to work with a team that is keen in raising a generation that will be responsible for their own lives both at an individual as well as societal level. Moreover, the best gift anyone can give you is the Gift of ACCESS and this is the heartbeat of TYSA. As I join TYSA in the capacity of the chairperson of the board, I am not only committed in giving the best of my efforts, knowledge and skills in driving the schema of TYSA; but also keen in getting the best out of it as well. God bless you! God bless TYSA!
