The Mistaken Fight

By a male, 16-21 years old, in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of The mistaken fight I tell a story of our right honorable Prime minister Raila Odinga. Mr. Odinga once went out to lobby for reservation of the Mau forest. He preached about encroachment of that important water catchment area and also spereheaded for eviction of illegal land owners in the forest. To my view Mr. Odinga has completely done us pride by ensuring that we do suffer from diverse climatic setbacks. He only showed that he had the heart of Kenyans at heart.He even had to brush shoulders persuasively with his political friends who turned foes. Surprisingly many still did not realize this they allowed themselves to be manipulated especially by selfish leaders taking the prime minister as one who did not consider humanity. This was a total like and those who hate Mr Odinga for this is not a faithful citizen. Read more.

After The Earthquake English Was Free Around Me

By a female, 16-21 years old, in Port Au Prince, Haiti
Map of After the earthquake English was free around me To begin with, as everybody has his opinion about an individual thing or organisation, so do I. I have mine but its not about an individual thing. It's about an organisation. So we could say that we are so delighted to explain you how this organisation helped many young people learn English. With this opportunity everybody who made part of this course for the time being has level now in English. The name of the organisation is EDV. Maybe this organisation did something else, but around us they helped us to speak and write in English. For instance, if we travel in a country where English is spoken, we will not need an interpreter to Interprete for us. With what the organisation taught us we will do everything that we had to do by ourselves. In this case we would like to say a big thanks to this organisation that helped us speaking English.
