The 2010 “Children’s Voices” conference was held on Saturday 3rd July 2010 at Nairobi Primary School and the theme was: “Your Constitution, Our Constitution- Our Future”. This year’s theme is a critical area of concern for children as right owners and other duty bearers.
For the first time ever,TYSA send two girls, Irene (15years) and, Edith (14years) who represented the entire Rift valley province. It was great privileged for TYSA to participate at such high National Level. The issues of children from rural kenya were heard.
Irene participated in the debate on parliament and executive while Edith participated in the governance debate. they all shared their understanding and experiences at the community level.Comparatives was done on how a village is governed and that of a city. The children from rural area new much about rural governance while those from the cities new about city management
