About Me:

Education & Training

My name is Carolyne Rufa, a continuing student at Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology.

Am pursuing a Diploma in Public Relations and Creative Advertising. My first encounter with Society Empowerment Project was through its Women’s Football team at a tournament. By then I was an opponent playing for my university’s football teams as a goalkeeper.

I was excited when I secured an opportunity to pursue my internship with SEP in 2020. I decided to join SEP ladies’ team because I was to spend some time with the organization.

This meant that I was getting both my educational and sporting skills improved at a go. I also became the coordinator of one of their main MIT projects that focuses on menstrual hygiene. Because of this, I opted for online classes so that I could juggle and get more life and educational skills from the organization.

My experience at Society Empowerment Project as an intern has been the best I have ever had. I have been able to improve my public relations skills by ensuring a good and reliable relationship between Society Empowerment Project and its stakeholders.

The organization gave me a chance to meet and interact with a lot of people both nationally and internationally thus enabling networking and creating professional connections.

My team has been able to achieve a lot of progress on menstrual hygiene as we have been able to produce reusable pads, period panties and even wash bags to compliment them. Working on the project has been interesting as well as educative. The internship has reinforced my career goals and I pray that my continued stay at SEP will bring forth even more experience.
