Naomi Gichungu

Naomi is passionate about environmental issues and has been an environmental educationist for the longest time. Brought up in the city, she always found a way to spend her vacations volunteering with the rural tribal communities of Kenya. These experiences shaped the person she has become today, a young woman bringing change in society by engaging in small conversations on how we can all care for the environment. Her wildest dream is to change attitudes and behaviors of everyone she meets so they become more environmentally conscious. 

Currently she is taking her master’s at the University of Winnipeg in Indigenous development. She is involved in the Ecological People in Action student group as a Coordinator. At the community level she is working with new-comer communities at the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization of Manitoba and with Indigenous organizations funded by the United Way Winnnipeg.
