    Hello everyone, I am Inviolata Njeri Njoroge - Ochieng, I live and work in Nairobi for LVCT Health. At LVCT Health I Co-ordinate social protection interventions under a program called DREAMS. I join the Kenya community to share (my little experience) and learn from the community. In addition to what I do at LVCT Health, I am passionate about improving the quality of lives for poor people and since the resources are always limited this platform comes in handy to help me increase my network and learn more about fundraising.
