Long time ago there has not been any means of communication,if there was then the language barrier was a major problem.Thank to the ministry of mass communication which has come up with a easy way of passing messanges to many people at once,the radio broadcasting.Due to the fact that radio is relatively cheap and can be afforded by many and can as well reach remote areas with no language barrier as it of different languages.This has changed the life of many people in the community as they can now get news read to them even if they are in remote areas.

A Second Chance

By a female, 22-30 years old, in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of A SECOND CHANCE After completing my secondary school education, I was able to obtain 66 points. Though everyone at home was happy I had pass, I wan not because I had missed one mark to go to the university which was my desire. My parents tried to console me by making a party for me but inside I was devastated. After applying for almost a year in different institutions to start parallel program, without replies, I almost gave up in education. One evening while taking supper with my parents, my uncle called my father and asked him how many points I had got. He later told my father though the phone that JAB had reduced enrty points of going to the university to 65 points. I was very happy to know that I got a second chance to enter the university. Now I have only one year remaining to finish my university education. Read more.
