SISTER MARGARET ARRINGO - KENYA
Empower Kenyan Women to Seek Wholeness of Life
Because of cultural taboos in Kenya, women get no medical care, health education or counseling. These cultural taboos marginalize women, causing thousands of deaths each year.
Margaret Arringo, a Franciscan Sister of St. Joseph plans to develop a health center where women suffering from diseases can get treatment, sound health care, and counseling.
“I intend to empower women to assert themselves and seek wholeness of life in the face of dehumanizing cultural taboos, so that they have good health, know their rights, transform their lives and become liberated.”
Arringo attends WLW training to get learning and insights for establishing a sustainable health center. Likewise, she gets the opportunity to network with other global women who share her hopes and desires for empowering women through self-reliance.
She holds a MA Degree in Theology, a Post-Graduate Diploma in Education; MA in Franciscan Theology and currently a doctoral student at the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley
