Cleia Noia

Cleia Noia (Kakenya Center for Excellence – KCE): Cleia was born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where she worked as a corporate lawyer. At the time of her fellowship she was studying for a Master’s degree with The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University. Her concentrations were on humanitarian studies, human security and international organizations, with a particular interest in poverty reduction, human rights and social justice. After her fellowship Cleia wrote: “I enjoyed tremendously the personal satisfaction I got from connecting on a deeper level with the people from Enoosaen, particularly Kakenya’s family and the girls at the school.”



Hello!

28 Apr

Although I am still in the United States and will not be physically there for another 3 weeks, my journey to Enoosaen, Kenya, started last week, when I finally met Karin Orr and Iain Guest, from the Advocacy Project, and Kakenya Ntaiya, the mastermind behind the Kakenya Center for Excellence. Finally meeting them in person was a great way to realize how real it is all becoming!

Spending time with them was also very helpful to have a better idea about what should be prioritized now, and how I can help the project during my time in Kenya. Listening to Kakenya talk about KCE firsthand was very stimulating, and her passion and commitment to the school and to the girls in her community shines through.

I am also looking forward to meeting Charlotte in person, and really glad I will be able to help her with the great work she has already done around KCE. Charlotte, this fellow Muzungu will be there soon enough!
