Women Are More Transparent And Open Minded.

By a female, 31-45 years old, in Kakamega Central, Kenya
Map of WOMEN ARE MORE TRANSPARENT AND OPEN MINDED. My name is Omoro Voscar, a social worker from the District Gender and Social Development office in Kakamega Central District. I have watched women in their quest to bring up a new order of life in the social, economic and physical well-being in society and I was quick to conclude that they have a masters degree in concluding things. In 2010 Kenyatta University arranged for an opportunity to do capacity building for women in the province of Western. They congregated at a hotel in Kakamega town for a week. They were lively, vigourous, vibrant, reasonable, curious, active in participation and free in sharing ideas on how to become better assets/agents of change in society. They were open minded, transformed and shared their experience so much that at the end each one was even richer. They have moved forward, upgraded their own status and transformed themselves tremendously. Read more.

Education Is Life

By a male, 16-21 years old, in Migori, Kenya
Map of EDUCATION IS LIFE Education in life is and for one to become what they want to be in life must get good education. Some communities came to realize this and became determined to take their children to school. There was the formation of groups and organisations which were meant to contribute money to enable the upcoming children to go to school. It was done to everybody regardless of the condition of learning poor or rich. Their children got opportunities to go to higher levels of learning. Today, poverty has been buried. Teachers, MPs, DCs and soldiers and many more. All this because of education. Surely education is life. Read more.
