Atieno Beril Jimbo has been working in the Nyendo office in Nairobi since August 2021. She became aware of nyendo through Irmgard Wutte and was immediately enthusiastic about our idea and working for nyendo.
Her main tasks are the management of the nyendo office and the coordination of the nyendo projects. Twice a week she is on site to support the communication of the individual Nyendo partners. In cooperation with Jasmine, she is responsible for the transmission of the concrete data of the individual projects to Germany.
Projects with the partner schools
She is currently overseeing a project at Kanyroscha School: a farming club whose members volunteer to grow and harvest vegetables and then sell them at the market. The proceeds in turn benefit the students at Kanyroscha School.
In addition, Atieno is coordinating the development of the NairoBits ICT Learning Center at Kangemi Youth School, which we report on regularly here on the blog.
Atieno would also like to intensify the contact with the student companies in Germany and Austria. For this purpose, she is planning regular Zoom meetings – and maybe it will also be possible for Atieno to come to Germany for nyendo’s annual retreat.
Atieno lives in the small town of Ruaka in Greater Nairobi. She studied Agribusiness Management at the University of Nairobi. After completing her studies in 2018, she focused on migration issues and worked as a consultant in this field.
