Adelle Onyango officially launched her initiative at a star-studded event held at the Shift Eye Studios, Nairobi.
The initiative is centred on the foundations of Youth Empowerment, Mental Health and Gender Equality and seeks to give opportunities to the youth and women in this country.
Many of her friends, family and colleagues attended the launch and it was a success with powerful speakers such as Caroline Mutoko, Rama Oluoch and Nelly Tuikong-Park, Pauline Cosmetics founder.
Among the guest who made a special appearance was Patricia Kihoro who then took to social media to pen down a sweet message to Adelle.
Adelle, thank you. For everything that you do. You’re such a beautiful, powerful light. Everyday, in observing you, these words are reiterated consistently... “There is no passion to be found playing small, in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” by Nelson Mandela. I’m learning this from you constantly. Thank you for the constant inspiration. Guys, follow the @adelleonyangoinitiativeand be a witness or a part of the amazing work that @adelleonyango is doing in creating opportunities for the youth, fighting gender-based violence and having necessary conversations on mental health.#AOInitiative #UnapologeticallyAfrican
