Passion and Vision
It has always been Khai Aye’s dream to help and give something back to her people. Her passion corresponds fully with the vision of The Waymaker Trust which is “to see better opportunities for everyone” in Maraland particularly Mara women. Through her own struggles and experiences Khai Aye has a unique insight into the difficulties and injustices women can face in what is still a largely patriarchal society. One of the main aims of The Waymaker Trust is to develop, nurture and support the ‘family makers’ and its objectives can be summarized as follows;
- To encourage and empower women to fulfill their full potential through education, skills and livelihood training,
- To build capacity and increase opportunities for women’s development in all Mara communities and to work towards the elimination of poverty, hunger, illiteracy and ill health,
- To enhance economic opportunity and self-reliance amongst women and to end inequality and discrimination against women,
- To strengthen and support local community partners with a view to improving the quality of life for everyone within the community.
