Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to eradicate poverty in Kenya or at least bridge the gap.
Poverty has many dimensions and its largest causes or contributors include - Unemployment, Poor living standards, Poor health care, Gender inequality, and social exclusion amongst many others.
Informed people make a better platform for change.
It's all part of making a better world.
I want to ensure that all men and women especially the youth have equal rights to economic resources as well as access to basic services like health, education, technology, financial & micro-financial services.
I want to implement policies and programmes at the county and even at the national level to support accelerated investments in poverty eradication actions.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by people living in the marginalized areas especially in the Nairobi's Korogocho and Kayole slums where I grew up.
Women, and the youth by empowering them with information and mobilizing local action towards one common goal - A better future for us all.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Raising the standards of living by curbing unemployment especially amongst the youth
Access to basic better health care services like nutrition
Working with lawmakers to sensitize on poverty
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
I will know I'm succeeding when;
There's growth in the employment of the women and youth (Offer entrepreneurial skills)
Basic health care services are easily accessible
Education is accessible (esp. primary level)
Access to information - Informed people make a better platform for change.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
