She has worked with many organizations through volunteer work in sensitizing and raising awareness of the rights and needs of persons with intellectual disability and their families.

Her years of working experience especially in mobilizing parents of persons with intellectual disability has made her reckon that persons with intellectual disabilities and their families are neighbours, community members and fellow citizens who suffer stigmatization, discrimination and social exclusion but need to be recognized as full citizens, and must enjoy the full rights as anybody else. She believes that by encouraging physical, cognitive and social development, as well as speech development through love, respect and creativity, these people can feel valued and can become contributors to their communities’ development.
