Vote for...Nafisa Khanbhai Mombasa Kenya

Nominated for the SJA Ujama Community Award

Nominee Profile: Nafisa Khanbhai 

Nafisa Khanbhai is a beacon of hope and empowerment, a woman whose tireless dedication to humanity service has spanned over two decades, leaving an indelible mark on the lives of countless individuals in Kenya. Her journey, characterised by unwavering commitment and compassion, is a testament to the transformative power of service and the resilience of the human spirit.

Her foray into humanity service began in 1996 when she joined the Leo Club of Mombasa, igniting a flame of passion that continues to burn brightly to this day. From there, Nafisa’s path led her to serve in various capacities within the Rotaract Club of Mombasa, where her leadership and vision propelled numerous initiatives forward, touching lives and communities.

However, it is not merely in the boardrooms or meeting halls where Nafisa’s impact is felt most deeply. As a member of the Stoma Care Group, she intimately understands the challenges faced by individuals with colostomy or urostomy bags, offering not only practical support but also a beacon of hope and understanding born from her own experiences.

Nafisa’s creativity knows no bounds, as evidenced by her poignant play, “Dear Diary,” which served as a catalyst for societal change, shedding light on the discrimination faced by the physically challenged. This artistic endeavour transcended the stage, giving rise to the Dear Diary Initiatives Kenya, a testament to the enduring power of storytelling and advocacy.

Her literary contributions extend even further with the publication of “Unbroken Wings,” a deeply personal memoir that resonates with readers and amplifies the voices of the marginalised. Through her words, Nafisa uplifts and empowers, offering solace to those who may feel forgotten or overlooked by society.

Yet, perhaps most profoundly, Nafisa’s heart beats with a fierce dedication to the most vulnerable among us. Through the Restoration Orphanage and her collaboration with Dear Diary Initiatives Kenya, she provides a nurturing haven for children, including those with disabilities, ensuring they are clothed, fed, and educated, embodying the true essence of selflessness and compassion.

Nafisa’s impact reverberates far beyond the borders of Kenya, echoing in the hearts and minds of individuals around the globe. Her advocacy has paved the way for a more inclusive society, where barriers are broken, and all individuals are embraced for their inherent worth and potential.

Winning this award would not only honour Nafisa’s remarkable achievements but would also shine a spotlight on the transformative power of service and advocacy. It would serve as a beacon of hope for individuals living with disabilities, inspiring them to believe in themselves and pursue their dreams with unwavering determination.

In Nafisa Khanbhai, we find not only a nominee but a true champion of humanity, whose light illuminates the path towards a more compassionate and inclusive world.
