Nusrat Mohammed, a passionate community engagement activist, has joined MUHURI Board, having spent years fighting cultural oppression facing women and children.

Her work, which further includes ending the neglect of the boychild, spans across the Coast region and has had enormous successes.

Nusrat raises awareness about mental health and religious imposition, too. She conducts civic education to stop sexual gender-based violence (SGBV) at the Coast, a region where such vice is widespread.

Weekly and in collaboration with Swahilipot Hub, Nusrat trains youths in core life-skill strategies and mental stress management. The program helps the group to make healthier choices in life.

Nusrat is also an avid animal welfare activist. She founded the Pwani Animal Welfare Organization, a community-based organization that she uses to educate locals about animal’s wellbeing. The new Board member is a Certified Rabies Educator and a member of the Global Alliance for Rabies Control.

Nusrat addition to MUHURI Board is a big boost. Her expertise in women and children rights and youth engagement fits tightly in our programs. Her zeal will add impetus to our pursuit to seek justice for the marginalized and oppressed.
