Agnes Wangui Irungu

Intern - social media

Agnes Irungu offered her services as a volunteer intern and kiSwahili/Kikuyu translator to the Stable Planet Alliance and our project GirlPlanet.Earth.  She grew up in Kenya's rural highlands, watching the effects of climate change on farming, women’s livelihoods, and land condition.  Although she works by day as a customer care representative in Nairobi, she aims to use her knowledge, skills and talents to serve humanity in a broader context.  Her first contribution was translating the summary of the blueprint paper ‘World Scientists’ Warning into Action, Local to Global’ into kiSwahili to increase its accessibility to Kenyan decisionmakers at different scales.
