No Work For The Youth

16-21 years old, in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of NO WORK FOR THE YOUTH girls in kibera are taken advantage of to get jobs anywhere in nairobi but it seems that there is no one to fight for them. i gathered a story from one of my good friends and she was telling of a day when she went to search for a job in town in a certain office. the first thing she was told was to give her body inorder to get at job but because she believed in her dignity she refused and decided that she is not going to take the job. i think that the girls in kibera will never get away off their problems unless they give there body for a job opportunities and this is not even looked at by the kenyan government or any other person. but i believe that some of this girls have the qualifications to get the jobs and more but they are denied because of racial discrimination. i only pray that an individual or any person to come out and stand for the youth in kibera or even from other poor places and slums.
