Being A Role Model To The Community

By a female, under 16 years old, in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of BEING A ROLE MODEL TO THE COMMUNITY I like Mrembo Programme because it has helped my sister very much during her pregnancy and during her childbirth. It has taught me to be clean all the time because I am a girl and to avoid walking with boys anyhow. I have learnt to about family planning and the problems that face the young girl during childbirth. I have also learnt much about female genital mutilation and also about various sexually transmitted diseases associated with drug abuse, early family planning, starting sex early, walking in the dark and in dark alleys, and walking alone at night. I will obey my elders and to serve them without discrimination. I would like to join the Mrembo Watches and to be able to preach the gospel of AIDS and also reproductive health and other diseases associated with slums. I pray that Mrembo may recruit me as one of them so that I can help other girls like myself. Read more.

Change For The Future

By a male, under 16 years old, in Bungoma, Kenya
Map of CHANGE FOR THE FUTURE In our home area in Mwalie village, drinking was valued so much. I wondered why they honoured such kind of traditions. The village had become a sleeping village lands were left untilled and nobody cared about it. I had become a usual matter people drinking at eleven o'clock in the morning. The village administration had heard some of the residents pleas since there were some brewers who put into the brews some toxi chemicals and the villages death toll had increased spontaneously and had contacted a non-governmental organisation (VIJANA KWA WAKENYA) to hold a meeting with the people in order to advise them on the demerits of alcoholism. This organisation through 'CHANGE FOR THE FUTURE' programme held a two-week educational project on the effects of alcohol taking and its effects on the country at large.

Girl-child We Can

By a male, 16-21 years old, in Kakamega, Kenya
Map of Girl-child We can In my society, women are always considered to the weaker sex. In most cases they are not taken to be very serious people in the society. Education which is a fundamental item in most peoples life is seen as what is hindered from them accessing it. The girl-child has been deprived off the knowledge thus has enhanced of her loosing meaning in society. the society saw an urgent need where the girl-child would be motivated so as to make here more of economic use to the society. A kit was developed by the villages where a couple of money was kept so that those who were performing well in their studies would be able to be rewarded. By doing so every female student in the area was motivated to do their best inorder to suceedd and follow the suit of well-known women in the area. Read more.
