In her capacity as a High Level Influencer for the UNHCR, Pinky Ghelani launched The Sustainable Livelihoods Initiative to support refugee women in Kenya. The initiative was launched at a brunch rightfully titled The Power Of Her, as it saw powerful and influential women gather at The Trademark Hotel to witness and participate in this launch. The Sustainable Livelihoods Initiative aims to raise Ksh. 5 Million this year. In this light, the brunch was the first of a series that seeks to gather smaller groups with high influence with a common and joint aim to raise the dignity of displaced women and children. All funds pledged and contributed will go toward furthering UNHCR activities aimed at empowering the refugee women such as business, vocational and entrepreneurial training; cash grants & market networks. As a member of the LuQuLuQu Tribe under the UNHCR, Pinky became the first African to reach into her social capital and resource to contribute to their mandate which is to shaping the narrative of Africa’s displaced, and drive contributions toward supporting refugees to be self-reliant.
