I am really honoured to be here and thank you for all that you do for the children worldwide BUT; There are thousands of children living on the streets, around us but we turn a blind eye! These hungry, lonely and helpless young children roam the streets day and night no where to go, no future, no education, no parents, no one cares. They are victims of poverty, domestic violence and orphanism, They hunt for food and hope and survival! They become again victims of...

50 years after independence some counties in Kenya are marginalized and far from mainstream development. Article 204 of the Kenyan constitution provides for an equalization fund of 0.5% of the national budget to cover service provision and infrastructure development in marginalized areas. However, the rift of development between counties in Kenya is still wide, and this begs the question; who is to blame for the cases of insecurity, food insecurity, poverty levels of up to 84%, poo...

I would first like to dedicate my condolences to all the girls in Nigeria who went missing. I don't even know where to start. I feel like what Boko Haram has done is very foolish. Who would have thought of taking over 200 girls from their homes and then selling them? Are they mad? I mean I am 11 and if I went missing my parents would be overcome in sorrow. The more I think about the issue, I feel like the military in Nigeria and the President Goodluck Jonathan should be doin...

Before, there was an economic problem in Ivory Coast in 1980, so the first president of the Ivory Coast - Felix Houphouet Boigny - tried everything to settle that problem with many politicians, but they couldn’t. Alassane Ouattara was working for International Monetary Fund in the United States at that time, and President Felix Houphouet Boigny called him back to the Ivory Coast to take care of this problem.That is when President Houphouet made him prime minister. At that time, a...

http://news.distractify.com/culture/childrens-bedrooms-across-the-world/ Recently, I saw something posted on Facebook which was incredibly thought provoking. It wasn't some ornate tapestry, confounding riddle or joke I could not understand. Rather, it was a demonstration of the condition of the world through the medium of photography. I was appalled. The photos were not ugly or disgusting. Instead, I felt as if my place in the world was so detached from the places of others that...

Recently, in my country, there has been a campaign geared towards encouraging young people from Kenya and East Africa to embrace farming as a profession under the banner of “farming is cool”. The campaign encompassed using one of Kenyas young and hip celebrity (Juliani) who has a very large following doing a tour and exposing successful farming ventures by other young people. It also involves Amiran (main Sponsors) promoting their merchandise to the audience. I cannot authorita...
