Teacher Feted By Colleagues on Mashujaaa Day for Her Girl Child and Teacher Advocacy, Gifted a New Car

A Girl Child activist and teacher advocate from Bungoma County was on Saturday feted by her friends following her dedication in championing for the girl child education and teachers’ welfare issues.

Dr. Rebecca Masibayi, who runs the Girl Child Advocacy Initiative in Bungoma, was feted by friends and colleagues at Santa Mara Resort in Bungoma County.

Having organised dozens of charity activities for girls within Bungoma County for more than seven years now, Dr. Masibayi has been seen as a role model to many parents, teachers and children who look upon her for inspiration.

It’s at this juncture that her friends and colleagues surprised her with a Mashujaa Day party to celebrate her as their own heroine.

“We have organised this for you Mum, because you have given us and our children much hope to shine in our lives,” said one of the organisers.

Girls Advocacy Initiative was founded in 2012 whereas the Bungoma Lady Teachers Association (BULATEA) was founded in 2014 with Dr Rebecca Masibayi being among the key starters.

The main goal of BULATEA is to have all female teachers empowered both economically and knowledge-wise.

Dr Masibayi, who is also a high school teacher in Bumula Sub-County, has been active in both girl-child and teacher matters advocating for the rights of young girls and teachers’ issues in the society.

“Our main goal at Girls Advocacy Initiative is to speak up for abused, neglected or abandoned girls and guide them to places where they can stay at peace,” explained Dr Masibayi.

“Besides, we support girls from economically disadvantaged families who are in school with opportunities and support that does not only emphasize on academics.” She told the gathering that included Bungoma County Deputy Governor Prof Charles Ngome.
