Map of ART AND DESIGN Immediately after my form four course,i came up with a project of making dyes and brushes.The way of making up these was to look simply an avacado fruit and some herbals. The project came wide with time,so a man came in our village looking for some youths whose interest are for arts Now he found me doing different work from the one interested at.He decided to challenge some collegues to accompany me in that work.

All Is Lost

By a female, 16-21 years old, in Kakamega, Kenya
Map of All is lost I am a girl aged 17 and I learn in the Sacred heart Mukumu Girls High school in form two 2011. When I realized that I was an orphan, my hopes had died and I never knew anything about future. When I was still going through life torture, an organization I never knew came on my way. They meant to help those who suffer but intelligent students, whose hopes had died and their dreams shuttered. They were very inspiring and they inspired me not to lose hope but be very optimistic with life. They were like parents to me and advised me to work hard because all was not lost. I took in what they said and to my life has completely changed. i know i have direction which has done extra-ordinary sacrifice for us, they can even took us to visit the ancestral home of the US President Barack Obama. Therefore, they should have credit and provisions to go beyond the region. I am Akinyi leah Elizabeth form Mukumu girls high school. Read more.
