About my work

Rural Tourism Network which I am the founder member and CEO is a multi stakeholder rural tourism network working in where there is a huge untapped potential for rural tourism, culture and heritage tourism, adventure tourism, nature and water based tourism and Eco-tourism due to lack of awareness, community involvement and participation in development activities and absence of effective policies and regulatory framework. My background is community development which I have served under in for close to 25 years at different international organizations including, EU Community Development Trust Fund Kenya, UNICEF, and CAFOD UK. I have developed a tourism diversification and master plan for Western Kenya and Lake Victoria region, I was a active member of Global Partnership for Sustainable tourism and currently a an active member of 10YFP.
