Importance Of Kazi Kwa Vijana Project

By a female, 22-30 years old, in In Nairobi City, Kenya
Map of IMPORTANCE OF KAZI KWA VIJANA PROJECT Am Leah Amboke from Nairobi am about to narrate a story about''kazi kwa vijana project.''This came up in the year 2009 which was introduced by the government so as to help young people to achieve their dreams.The project was good only that the leaders were corrupt because they didn't give out the amount that was signed by the government.I had an opportunity to be one of the workers whereby we suffered so much due to delay in payments.We were payed after a donation 2-3 months That when we got the first months salary.I thank God since up to now the government has improvised on the project. People who are still working earn a bitter salary and also on time and it has also changed young peoples lives.The have also build up in their jobless have acquired opportunities and they have also build up in their communities we can see several projects going on such as irrigation dams are constructed to provide water in arid areas to help for food production and others.

The Journey

By a female, 46-60 years old , in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of THE JOURNEY Travelling to me has always been a hobby to me ever since I was young .I enjoyed traveling so much especially long distance journey .Sometimes I could not sleep the entire night if i knew I would travel the next day .One day the story was different as I was traveling between Nairobi and Busia .That was December 2010 on the 9th.I went to book a bus at the Akamba booking office only to find that the charges were at 1100/= so I decided to go to Machakos country bus station and that's when i got myself into a mess.A young group of young men came to me seeking to carry for me my luggages.so I gave them and they did carry for me the luggages to the station .When we arrived there they claime five hundred shillings from me and if didn't give them they threatened to vanish with my luggages .So without question I gave them and again they order me to board another bus that wasn't in my mind and in no time they had even got my things into the bus .The bus fare was ksh 800 but not upto my destination .that meant I had to pay another ksh 200 go as to reach Busia from Nairobi .In total I had spent ksh 1500.I regretted for not boarding Akamba in the first place where I could just have spent ksh 1100 and travel comfortably and without so much frustration.
