Hi Brian! Welcome again. I’m glad to see another Kenyan joining the network. I myself spent some formative childhood years in your country so have a warm spot in my heart for the place. We have many Kenyans here in our community. You can participate online - the forum works really well on mobile devices as well as laptops.

We have an office in Nairobi, and also have a learning exchange on citizenship coming up in Kenya this fall - applications to participate are closing soon. You may want to take a look.

(Ekemini Udoh) #34

Well, I am a child right advocate In summary i am working on a new book titled Simplified child right Act,- Tommorrows vision. It is a follow up of my first book which was very sucesful for a first timer. was able to sell out a litttle over 6000 copies.

About 4000 of those copies were bought up by the Government and shared to children and caregivers in my state. Iit made its way to recommended books list for use in secondary schools in my state. It was sponsored by various organisations fighting for the rights of the child. eg stepping stones, Fulga , Topfaith school, and was choice material for U.S embassey /Obot Akara partnership programme in my local government.etc

Now what is new about the second edition is that it covers the national lawn rather than just the state law. and it adds a chapter on political apathy … to encourage young people in schools who are either 18 or will be 18 by next year to get their voters cards and give back to the commuity what the community has given to them, for they too have a duty to help choose credible leaders. we went on research and discovered that hundreds of thousands of will will be 18 by 2019 and it would be silly to ignore such a potent force . its a whole new genration of voters and we feel we must educate them to help bring good governance in our country Nigeria. will give details later.

Hello amazing people. Nice to meet y’all. Welcome.

Thanks a million for this opportunity. I got too busy that’s why i could not reply earlier on. I am Orock Obi from Cameroon. I am a young voluntary social worker. I belong to an association where we visit the elderly and orphans. During such visits, we encourage them via singing and educative talks. We bring along gifts in kind and in cash. We have been doing this for the past 4 years. Personally I run a facebook page (though not very active due to academic obligations lately) wherein I show the importance of social work and the rights of the needy, the need for responsible governmental action and social environment of Human Rights. Academically, I am a young diplomat. Graduate from the International Relations Institute of Cameroon with a Masters in International Relations :option International Communication and public action.
