March Coffee Talk Storytelling with Power! Teresa Njoroge

March Coffee Talk Storytelling with Power! Teresa Njoroge

March 4, 2019


While you may have limited control on what happens around you, you have full control on how you react. It’s about turning events to your advantage, taking lemons and making lemonade! In 2009, Teresa Njoroge Founder Clean Start, then a senior bank manager, was arrested for a crime that she did not commit and, in 2011, was sentenced to a year in Langata Women Maximum Security Prison, Nairobi. Teresa’s first-hand experience of prison, the desperate plight of the women and girls she met behind bars and the revolving door of crime and poverty she witnessed, inspired her to devote her life to equipping and empowering female inmates to better prepare for the precarious journey of reintegration into society. Clean Start aims to provide sustainable Second Chances for women and girls leaving prison.

Join us for the KAFP March Coffee Talk scheduled for Thursday 28th March 2019, The Topic – Storytelling With Power: Learning the Art of Storytelling. Story telling should fuel all your fundraising, Donors give money to charitable causes because they emotionally connect with the story we tell. Stakeholders support our work for many reasons, the ability to capture your impact and success in great stories that connect with the greater human cause is a great fundraising asset. Data alone is boring! This session focusses on the art of storytelling that resonates with your key audiences.

The Speaker – Teresa Njoroge Founder Clean Start. Teresa is an Acumen Fellow and she has been awarded several fellowships including Vital Voices Lead and Metis Fund. In 2015, Clean Start received an award from Women and Girls Lead Global for its advocacy on behalf of marginalized groups. In November 2017, Teresa spoke about her story and Clean Start’s work at the TEDWomen 2017 Global Conference in New Orleans and at The Institute for Criminal Policy Research in the UK at the University of London for the launch of their study into Female Imprisonment Worldwide.
