Sarah Omega is the Founder and Executive Director for Let’s End Fistula Initiative after holding the position of the Country Program Manager for 8 years prior to LEFI’s formal registration as a Non-Governmental Organization. Her passion in advocating for women living with fistula started after a successful surgical treatment that ended her 12 years of living with fistula. Since 2007, Sarah has been championing for maternal health at both local and international levels.
She served as the Kenya’s Maternal Health Advocate under UNFPA Kenya Office from 2007 to 2009, served as the Treasurer of the Board for Gynocare Women’s and Fistula Hospital Kenya 2010-2015, served as a Board Member for Fistula Foundation California USA 2012-2014 and also worked as a Consultant in Communication for Fistula Foundation 2013-May 2020.
Sarah Omega’s passion to speak for the voiceless (women and girls living with fistula) was inspired, integrated and ignited through successful graduation from the Leadership Training at iLEAP Seattle USA in 2012.
Sarah also serves as LEFI’s Board of Directors Secretary and as an ex-official member.
