Wangui Winkelpleck

A Kenyan native, Wangui moved to IA about 10 years ago. She has always been highly interested in women’s issues and enjoys working in an organization that helps address some of them.
In her spare time, she enjoys hanging out with her husband and 3 kids, visiting with friends and family, and a good book.
Why House of Hope?
Having lived in a highly paternalistic society made me especially sensitive to the challenges that women face simply trying to live their life. HOH has been a welcome breath of fresh air as to the practical solutions for some of those challenges. To see woman after woman garner support in their journey to success has instilled a hope for positive, achievable change, in societies.
