Transformation

By a female, 22-30 years old, in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of TRANSFORMATION Two weeks ago while still carrying out a networking session between community transformers and the community around, i was privileged to meet a youth group made of reformed youths who were once addicts and some had gone to reherb to be rehabilitated. The group in Mathare, have transformed a slopy area near the river that used to be a dumping area where some residents used as their toilet into an agricultural productive area. They have constructed terraces with stone planted vegetables which were growing well. I was so impressed by their effort. During our visit we were assisting them to build a base where they were to put a water tank to use to irrigate the plot. The group have changed the appearance of that place and made it reproductive.

The Student Background Must Not Affect Them

By a female, under 16 years old, in Kitale, Kenya
Map of the student background must not affect them This the most fatal occurrence when a student is being (or a person) being favored because of his/her gender. What brings this about may be tribe,gender,religion or any other cause like background. But the worst thing to loose in life is hope.we must not bear in mind what people may talk about us,but stay focused to reach our destinations and make our dreams come alive On the line of students they must read hard to make sure they achieve their goals. a students background may produce a conducive background by providing a basic and student needs.Alcohol,child labour,rape,murder and other cases may be a plunder to students progress.

There Is A Solution In Great Innovation.

By a male, 31-45 years old, in Kakamega North, Kenya
Map of THERE IS A SOLUTION IN GREAT INNOVATION. I am Andrew Simiyu,Brian Makto’s guardian and real father . It has been a joy since 2009 when I took an almost hopeless,useless,good for nothing playful boy like mine to Highway ECDE centre. I feared that though the payment asked for was not much,even that one was being lost as I had nothing to expect from such a boy. However, after 3 years, if that boy can sit down do work on his own and behave responsibly then it is for the good work that the teaches in the centre are commited to. These teachers must have known the comet diagnostic examination and applied just the right treatment that my boy needed. He even teaches the elder one at home these days. Read more.
