RoseAnn Chelangat Otieno joined Ngong Road Children’s Foundation (NRCF) in 2007 as one of the beneficiaries for the education program from primary school, through Secondary School to University. Her education journey was made successful through the financial support of her sponsor Steve Lewis.
Roseann completed her primary school education in 2012 scoring a B+ at GSU primary school. This earned her a spot in Nembu Girls High School, one of the best secondary schools in Nairobi where she got a B grade and transited to Maseno University to study a Bachelor’s Degree in Geospatial Information Science with IT, a course girls have always shied from.
She however took it as a challenge and graduated in 2022 with a second Class Upper.
Roseann has held several leadership positions in her education journey beginning as a squad leader at Ngong Road Children’s Foundation, a Deputy School Captain, football Captain and Captain of students Campaign Against Drugs at her high school. In Maseno University, she was a class representative.
She began her career at Kenya National Highways Authority, KeNHA, and later joined Digireg Kenya as a data operator in Kisumu County where she currently works. In her spare time, Roseann volunteers as an Environmental Champion and participates in the UN-HABITAT- COVID-19 mitigation activities. Roseann also organizes a charity program at St Mary Magdalene Oasis of Peace Children’s Home in Kisumu County and a Street feeding program for street Children.
We wish Roseann a successful career journey.
