Tell us about an issue that matters to you and how you became aware and involved.

am so concerned about women. i dont want them to be reffered to as the weaker sex. i believe they are the stepping stones to development and for that, my friends and i encourage women especially in the rural ares to empower themselves. we help them in enrolling in adult schools and give them guidelines on how they can start and maintain small businesses with as little as 100 shillings.

Share your perspectives on what makes a good leader.

a good leader is a good servant; s|he allows themselves to serve the people.
a good leader is visional. looks ahead to focus on how the future is going to be better than today.
a good leader is a good listner. keeps their ears on the ground.
