In Unity We Can Move

Millennium Development Goals, commonly called the MDGs is a branch of ICT that has several projects within it. In it is a goal that states that "eradicate extreme hunger and poverty". Two men Steward and Rita, Kenyans who have been working abroad dreaded to come back to their motherland after a long stay in England. While there they had attended many conferences of MDGs and learnt from them to help. They then realized that in Kenya, the physically disadvantaged in Kenya are sometimes neglected and go borrowing mostly in Mombasa town. "Why don't we open a home for them?" Steward suggested and in acceptance, Rita nodded and soon a layout began. Today, many of them have good talents and are abroad and indeed have employed other people. What joy this has brought to them!
