She coordinates the work of over 30 grassroots interfaith organizations doing different social action in the Great Lakes countries of Africa.

She is widely traveled; something that has helped her conceive many life-changing situations outside the box. She is also a contributor to literature in the areas of interfaith, gender, environment and peacebuilding.
