There are still a lot of problems. However, we can infer that education does matter, wherever...

When I came across this article I was so glad that youth are actually taking it upon themselves to provide a sustainable and renewable energy source in Kenya. NAIROBI (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – It’s a hot afternoon in Nairobi’s Kibera slum, but 32-year-old Michael Matare is comfortable in his tiny room. The house is brightly lit by two plastic water bottles jutting out of the ceiling. Between them hangs a 100-watt bulb, but it isn’t needed. "Since I got these sola...

I also liked the way Lokalizo wants to appeal citizens for making them more responsible for changing their communities.While...

HIV can be contracted in many ways; some are born with it, some get it through accidents, yet some get it through defilement and rape. We all have people in our communities and schools that have HIV and we should always remember that they too are human and have the right to access that which we too have the right to. Let us look out for one another and care for one another, for the saying is true; if you are not infected then you are affected. Remember it could have been you!
