Ms. Maina is an avid supporter of the Sustainable Development Goals. She rallies young people through social media to own and accomplish the goals. She believes that the youth will be affected in one way or the other with the success or failure of Agenda 2030 hence why they need to have ownership of it. In Tuwakuze Africa together with the team, they support and equip the children with sustainable skills. The skills enable the children to take care of the environment and society around them.
