Ritha – Kenya

Public Health intern, ,

I am a community health graduate, and I was performing a public health program with Art in Tanzania. Initially, I was looking to work with women in medical facilitation centres. I ended up connecting research work and also performed home visits. It has been a remarkable experience for me. I was working on violence against women issues, which was a very emotional experience. Working with women is my passion. I feel Art in Tanzania can affect societies not only in Dar es Salaam but in Tanzania overall. 

I think what ART is missing is strong partnerships to make a crucial strong effect in societies. I will never forget the friends I made and the women I worked with. I am coming back. I think ART can focus on empowering the projects that are already existing rather than adding more projects, as that would easily make a stronger impact.
