By a male, 16-21 years old, in Kakamega, Kenya
Map of INTOXICATION THROUGH SUBSTANCE ABUSE/STREET LIFE EXPERIENCE Usually when one gets into the web of becoming a street child it is never their wish. Circumstances force it but with time the experience later takes control captivating one into confussion by intoxication. My case, Alex Ninja is one i regret after being subjected to this sort of life for over 5 years since 2004. When WEAEP came to rescue me in 2009 it was a mixture of releif and interruption as this was now my of life. WEAEP had to really labour and i thank god for the counseling and material support. I have now retraced my normal way of thinking. Having given up in life and distorted every manner of reasoning and proper use of brain through substance abuse, this is what has given WEAEP or anyone else who tries to help me a difficult time to handle. since I am now 18 it makes it even more complex adjusting to a new order but i believe i can obtain a course for life skills and work.

Determination Holds The Key To Success

By a male, 46-60 years old , in Kakamega North, Kenya
Map of DETERMINATION HOLDS THE KEY TO SUCCESS My name is Jonathan Bulungu. As a pastor I have always respected congregational efforts. Tried in all forms, collective power only yields results. In2003, I joined Chende Kalaha Self Help Group to find it a little ocean in which i could immerse my problems. It woked. The joint funds we raised through merry go round, always marked out like it wa too much, given to individuals in turns. It helped me to construct a big house when the old one was just falling on us. I also bought 3 animals as I got my turns of the merry go round funds. I have permanently switched positions in life as a result of this group. I believe we should get sponsors to take us to the next level. Read more.
