Child Development Program

16-21 years old, in Kisumu, Kenya
Map of CHILD DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM Child Development Organization was brought up by people so that they can assist the needy children. The organization selected various children in our community. They formed a child's department centre where they could be meeting regularly. Those children who had only one parent and could not afford most of the basic needs were also involved. People from Kenya organized sponsorship from other countries like USA whereby atleast one sponsor can manage three children. The sponsors sacrifice themselves various needs just for those children. The children usually meet at the centre with their employed teachers every saturday. The children are taught various life skills. The children are brought gifts which make them to be always happy. They are also provided with food to use at their homes. Their department teachers guide them and make sure the children are being taken care of.

Electing Able Leaders

By a male, 16-21 years old, in Kisumu, Kenya
Map of Electing able leaders The main means of transportation here in Kenya is the use of roads.Then the roads are in poor state,we get very difficult to walk from various places to the other.This is why am saying i will not forget this Nyakach Mp. Who has been really trying very herd to make sure that muram roads that most people use a part from tarmac roads are repaired every time good work is seen in them. The various steps that he usually take to repair these roads has really touched the people and wherever you go in this various villages where the roads pass, you will hear people talking about him positively. Before his election to the parliament he showed his people that he truly can lead them by building houses to some members of the communities who are very poor and living in houses that were really in poor state.He to the shoes an d put in on and felt where the pinch was.So many people could be heard talking about him till this was now the song people were sinning in the village every where about his good heart and showing concern.I can not forget to say that when i was i primary school he contributed in building schools buying of desks and even sponsoring some inable students to school. The people he helped by then were thanking him very much and they were praying that all our leaders could have the same kind of heart he has Kenya could have been so much ahead and our name Kenya could have been removed in the third world countries.I will not forget to say that chosing able leaders is good.Someone who is understanding and takes other peoples problems as their own and deal with them accordingly.I really love this and may God almighty shower him with blessings upon his life and make him prosper. I would like to conclude by saying that when time come elections we should be able to choose leaders who can help us and improve our living standards by representing us in the parliament in a good way.We should no elect our representers in the sake of election but be keen on electing active m embers to represent us.

By a male, 22-30 years old, in Busia, Kenya
Map of JAMES Jame had a good plans for the members of his community.Being a successful and wealthy businessman,he had plans to renovate the roads in her community in Mjuru.He also wanted to bring in water to his village members and do other developments like opening up a school and an orphanage to support the needy children in that community. However it's very unfortunate that in every place where good has to prevail,wickedness will also manifest.This is always seen in most African communities who normally use black magic to kill those who plan good and are successful.In this case,the wicked men in the community started to think that James wanted to show off his numerous wealth and they immediately started fighting him.Some went as far as seeking the powers of magicians in order to kill and sure enough they succeeded in killing him but the community has remained underdeveloped and in a very poor state and all they cry out is who shall raise upto try and revive the Mjuru community as all the successful wealthy men shun away from supporting the community.
