What comes to your mind when you hear the term “Social Media?" Perhaps some people thinking about the media that makes them able to meet and communicate with people around the world. While some others think about that, social media is the channel that gives them the chance to send and receive many information. Others think that social media is about the way we get many updates from people who we follow and maybe someone out there thinks social media is a part of a new marketing s...

You cannot ask people to wash their hands with soap if they don’t have the money to buy soap. You cannot hope to change social norms in the long term without also creating economic opportunities for the villagers - Guido Cornale, UNICEF representative in Niger.

Everybody learns about wars in their history classes. The basics include: who fought, what was the cause, and who won? But do we teach children about the real information behind wars? Do we teach our kids that during wars, millions of people may die just by being caught in the crossfire or that servant citizens by the hundreds of thousands may have lost their lives on the battlefield? Why do we speak of wars with such reverence and pride that we have forgotten what the real objecti...

In a county where rampant incidences of insecurity have been a bane for far too long, not forgetting the harsh climatic conditions that have made residents remain in constant grip of famine, Samburu County in Northern Kenya has always been making it to the headlines for all the wrong reasons. The killing of 42 Kenyan police officers in 2012 by heavily armed cattle raiders was the highlight trend of the worrying trend of insecurity in the region. The Catholic Diocese of Maralal...

I took an Environmental Science class last year. We learned that the general global populous of humans will not overshoot and plummet beneath its carrying capacity. Rather, we discovered that food production is not lacking and there is not a real shortage of food product in the world. If you think about it differently, you will see that this global dilemma of hunger is not a function of poor productivity or lack of resources. In the world, if we see it this way, we can assume that...

I just strangely wonder - struck for a while since reading some information about gender and climate change. The first confusing information I have read is the correlation between gender and climate change. In fact, women contribute to climate change. So, should we blame my mother when the climate is changing? Let’s check below for some references! We know that the effects of climate change will vary among regions. It means each country changes greenhouse emissions with diffe...

One of the biggest problems faced by some women is early marriage. The consideration sometimes tends to correspond to their parents. Their parents want to command their daughters to attain the highest carrier and well rounded education before getting married. However, early aged-women feel a dilemma as they want to decide what the best way is whether to marry or choose other options. Perhaps, some negative stereotypes occur when young women who are aged less than 21 years old m...

Upon our arrival at Barsaloi in Samburu North (North-west Kenya), to coordinate and Facilitate a Gender based Violence response and prevention workshop, We got information that one woman had suffered injuries on her left arm that very night, after being battered by her brother in law. This incident caused a slight unrest in the small town that is out of network coverage and lacks hydro-electric power supply. The lady was rushed to the Catholic hospital nearby. During the workshop,...
