In a bid to recognize and celebrate Kenyans engaged in various philanthropic activities, High Commissioner, Manoah Esipisu, congratulated Ms. Lydia Tett Olet who won the 2019 Diaspora Woman of the Year Award during the Voice Achievers Awards held in Kenya.
The Voice Achievers Award was established in the Netherlands as a project of The Voice magazine to recognize Africans and friends of Africa of outstanding achievement on a yearly basis. Since 2012, the award has taken a global outlook recognizing people outside of the Netherlands.
Ms. Olet is also the Chief Organizer of the annual event, Kenyans and Friends in the Park which brings together Kenyans living in the United Kingdom to network.
Amb. Esipisu hailed Ms. Olet for her work promoting the affairs of young people as well as ensuring that Kenyans remained connected to their roots while living in the UK.
Amb Esipisu also expressed support for the Kenya and Friends in the Park event, but said organizers needed a radical approach to the event, to make it more sustainable and to avail opportunities for knowledge sharing on trade and development.
