 In Conversation with Angela Githuthu, Safaricom’s Youth Segment Lead. Read the article here.

 In April 2019,  I had the priviliege of interviewing Ms. Agenes Gathaiya, then the CEO of Integrated Payment Services Limited (IPSL) at their offices in Nairobi, Kenya. 


Most Africans, and Kenyans, are conservative when it comes to mental health, because there is a lot of stigma surrounding mental health issues like suicide, depression, anxiety, and personality disorders. 
However, there are pioneers in the region, who have created platfroms to break this stigma and to make mental health access and support accessible to many. One such person is Phyllis Wanja, a YALI Fellow, who is the founder of Afyakili, an organisation which focuses on art therapy to facilitate better mental health. I sat down with her in early 2019 to discuss her work.
