Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to work towards ending youth radicalization in Kenya.
It's all part of making a better world.
My vision works towards creating a peaceful and inclusive world. Many youth who become radicalized join terror groups and so a threat to security among communities. In ending youth radicalization this will in turn reduce and extricate terrorism in Kenya but also across the region. thus, contribute towards forming a just and conflict free world.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by grassroots communities whose lives and livelihood become constantly threatened by escalating trends in terror violence, corporate businesses operating in Kenya and east African region, local governments, and national security sector in Kenya.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Mobilize communities and major stakeholders to support the idea of ending youth radicalization.
Draft a parliamentary bill to include youth radicalization as an immediate security concern.
Pass the radicalization bill in parliament and set indicators for measuring success.
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
First, I will constantly monitor progress against predefined success indicators including measuring the achievement of the aforementioned outcomes. Through this I will create a checklist of indicators and guideposts to help in formulating the policy idea and pushing it through the laid down procedures and processes.
The passing of the radicalization bill will be a major indicator of success.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
