Suzanne Wilson (now Suzanne Jeneby) "began her development efforts in Kenya in 1997, through her work with PCEA Kikuyu Hospital. In September 2000, with the help of the Seattle Junior Chamber (Jaycees), she founded the Kenya Kids AIDS Project. This project provided an emergency shelter, as well as over two-tons of humanitarian goods, to HIV/AIDS orphans in a Nairobi slum.
"In 2001, with the help of a Bill and Melinda Gates Leadership Grant, she founded the East African Center for the Empowerment of Women and Children. In 2002, she received her BSC in International Health from the University of Washington, focusing largely on African Studies and Public Health.
"As Executive Director of the East African Center, she oversees all of the EAC's operations in Kenya, as well as the EAC's efforts to establish future Centers in Kenya and elsewhere. Ms. Wilson is also the President of the Board of Directors for the East African Center’s Kenyan Non-Governmental Organization. In addition to her leadership responsibilities, she is currently spearheading the design of a multi-sector grassroots development model that the EAC plans to implement in other communities. She looks forward to a long career in international development."
