My name is Winnie Jeptoo Sengwer. I come from Sengwer Indigenous Community that resides in Embobut Forest in Kenya. I am a Human Rights Defender that is passionate about my community's land rights. This is because my community has been facing a lot of human rights violations that are caused by evictions from their ancestral home. I work with the National Coalition of Human Rights Defenders also known as Defenders Coalition as an Advocacy Officer where we contribute to the enforcement of norms, policies, and institutional frameworks that enhance the security, work, and wellbeing of Human Rights Defenders.
