DALPHEEN MORAA NYAMBANE
from Kenyatta University with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Environmental Studies in 2015. While on campus, she was an actively involved member of the Kenyatta University Environmental Club (KUNEC). As a student, she worked at the Kenya Tea Development Agency (KTDA) as a junior field services officer where she trained farmers on sustainable agriculture practices. She also worked for the National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA) as a trainee in environmental legislation and policies in Kenya. As for her industrial attachment she trained at the Regional Centre for Mapping of Resources for Development (RCMRD) on Remote Sensing and GIS software, her initial passion from high school.
Upon graduating in 2015, she immediately volunteered in Marsabit County at the Environmental Health department. For a city girl, it was such a culture shock because life was very different from what she knew as ‘normal’. Seeing others struggle for basic survival in a harsh environment was heart breaking and inspiring as well.
After the volunteer ship she ventured into other sectors of the environmental field. She worked at the Regional Centre for Mapping of Resources for Development (RCMRD). This experience together with other previous ones served as an excellent introduction to the NGO world but her desire for a more hands on experience was calling.
Dalpheen began as a volunteer at TSP after our 2017 well drill assisting with Hygiene & Sanitation workshops. She currently assists with grant research and brand outreach for TSP in Nairobi.
