X-mass is Here what plan!!!!

Sometime in life we have to sacrifice and let other things go in our life, but other small things we do for others even if it’s once for while make a big change in their life so do not be ashamed if you can’t not do the great things but focus on small achievement you wish in life!!
The other day somebody stole my Laptop plus others things yes it’s painful not for things but what it carried in it!! But just after many day’s of thinking of it’ and other things I remember only God know why other things happen to others and not to other one’s I just remember a story of the mother who carry a baby on a womb for nine month and when the time come to deliver the baby, it turn out something else- do we blame the maker or the mother or doctor or The Nature Non because God has purpose of everything in this world if you think of things which happen to people in this world you realize how lucky we are sometime in life…
To be able to see the day light is blessed, to get our daily bread is blessing and to have two hand two legs, two eyes healthy body or life is blessing.
So after all that life is good and if you are alive healthy and at list have a place to call home need to appreciate that and know that you are blessed!!

Kinyozi hajinyoi –‘‘A barber does not shave himself’’

He who leaves truth behind, returns to it- A person who does something good somewhere, people receive him/her with gladness when he comes back!! This have been said again and again and belief me or not yes not everything shine is Gold, Once I thought if you are focused and straight to the target you never miss your point but I was wrong our world is not that stable...
About five years ago I started two organizations with aim of achieving my goals in supporting my fellow Youth and the other one in helping in molding the children and supporting them mentally and education wise! But due to so many challenges in my personal life and global challenges this development of the two organizations have turned me up and down in searching for means of making them reality but so far every things  is still far to my goals, so struggle continues~
There is so many things people can do to help each others in our society but if we do not have good direction and good leadership to guide people doing the right thing it too difficult to achieve our goal by our own, or working by ourselves (Kinyozi hajinyoi -A barber does not shave himself) that why I always say we human it does matter in which level we all need one another in one way or another…
For this two months of our last months of this year I Have made one mission to myself worry of nothing, serve those I CAN as much as possible and in this I Remember it’s month’s to say thank to our maker for bringing me this far, am sure you know or you have end many who we started this journey together but today there are not with us, or sick somewhere in house in hospital or prison and others places we do not wish to find our self in today.. Is that not blessing to be here today healthily and strong!
Sharing with others your time your happiness for this last two months of the year is one greatest gift you can offer for appreciation of what life as offered for us all this long we are not best one’s to be here today or paid well or did what others have did not do, but been here today is a real blessing and that why we need to be proudly happy and take this last months to say thanks by doing just little favor to our maker.
This month’s I will be visiting few children home and friends sharing my time and what I have, as one of my way of thanking my Maker and on Christmas or before or after if all goes well I am planning to held a big children party – you too can Join me and share with others our joy and happiness even if we are not blessed to be rich or achieve our this year Goals yet we are alive and well it is enough reason or it something we need to say yes to others, even if we were hoping to be like this or do like this year but we didn’t manage it but we managed to be this far – sharing supporting those need us will open new doors for next year blessing.
Lastly I have  DREAM and I love sharing with those around me as I started from the top I have gone through hell of life this year but my spirit still stand strong and I know one day I WILL come to achieve my greatest desire dream of completing my children Center which I started few years ago- it hard to ask people to help me financially when I KNOW very well 80% of us we are struggling for daily bread and it hard to save enough to help others but as I Always say we are not equal and we are not the same everyone is special and have his/her greatness inside which can be useful to someone else ideas are sometime better than money if you know something or somebody or have something which can help me and my center, children Youth or women that my goal mission, I belief one day I will be able to educate that street child, give her/him a home and something to celebrate in life.
I also belief one day in that small village where I was born and raised I will be able to advocate and challenge that history of poverty among our people who are born and raised there without knowing the world is full of potential people to share and up lift their lives.
To finish up my today’s letter I know there somebody out there somebody who have this idea, somebody who have this great potential, somebody who is out there looking for opportunity to make change, I know we still have well-wishers people who are willing to help and many others all character of people who can help me out to achieve this dream to make me happy and other thousands children who will be beneficially of this center, Do not look more further just write to me share with me ask me question and I will be glad to share with you as much as my thinking capacity can allow me…..
Just to say- Masikini akipata matako hulia mbwata –(When a poor man gets something he boasts of his new wealth) am happily today I learn a lot from this world and that my wealth and one day I will be gladly happy sharing this with those in need most ‘‘Children’’
For any donation of few upcoming children event November and December kindly contact me or visit my Facebook page to see where and which children home will be visiting!!!!!
December will be Hope children & Empowerment Center – Embu just anything for children will be appreciated – clothes, food, books, etc
Asante Sana thanks for your time be blessed and have only great November – but December let it be marvelous love and peace- Akufaaye kwa dhiki ndiye rafiki (A friend in need is a friend indeed)

The truth about Human Being

One of the cosmic battles that exist is the desire for acceptance, love or basically the fear of rejection wrestling with our desire for SUCCESS! This not my words, but it my desire too- my grandma used to tell me Ben never give up coz when things get almost impossible it time you need to stand strong and look straight to your goal because there is always a purpose of everything- Friends sometime
words are better than just silent, be real use your words to reach out your friends it give them Courage to keep going on!!
The lives of others sometime make you feel better about your life while the lives of some make you feel like you could be doing more- today MY friend Kindly ask yourself who I am in front of others do I contribute in the inevitable rejection that has kept some of the world’s potentially greatest contributors undiscovered!!!!!-

Understanding of who you are and what we are and best way to represent yourself its well as understanding other people before you make Judgments to anybody, just sometime back I shared this basic true human behaviors’ story and hope it can help you too if you have not got opportunity to read it before- here was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She told her boyfriend, 'If I could only see the world, I will marry you.'
One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages came off, she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend.

He asked her,’ Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?' The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn't expected that. The thought of looking at them the rest of her life led her to refuse to marry him. Her boyfriend left her in tears and days later wrote a note to her saying: 'Take good care of your eyes, my dear; for before they were yours, they were mine.'

This is how the human brain often works when our status changes. Only a very few remember what life was like before, and who was always by their side in the most painful situations.
Life Is a Gift, Today before you say an unkind word – ‘‘Think of someone who can't speak’’.

Before you complain about the taste of your food - Think of someone who has nothing to eat. Before you complain about your husband or wife - Think of someone who's crying out to GOD for a companion. Today before you complain about life – think of someone who died too young!!

 Before you complain about your children -Think of someone who desires children but they're barren. Before you argue about your dirty house someone didn't clean or sweep -
Think of the people who are living in the streets.
Before whining about the distance you drive
Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.
And when you are tired and complain about your job - Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job.
But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another - Remember that not one of us is without sin and we all answer to one MAKER, And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a smile on your face and thank GOD you're alive and still around.

God Bless You.

Now it seems like Kibaki administration ending with his promise of free education while the private schools are getting too expensive.  What happening to our children who can’t afford the private school! Where is their Future!! Are we expecting to reduce the gap or leave it for the rich becoming more richer and poor more poorer! If our Mp’s are really honorable as it is’ they could now have resolved this issue already by cutting little of their salaries to a certain percent to go to the teachers.
Kenyan we need to wake up majority of us we work 24/7 and pay taxi for everything if your neighbor child does not get better education not only your neighbors will feel the pain belief me or not it will reach to your house too…
Today is the third week from when Kenyan school teachers started strike and our children are continued staying home and hopeless mothers are getting worries but the worse of it is how our leaders talk and it seem not even the big boss of our education offices worries so much because none of their children go to those public school.
Just to take you back in time when our current parliament house took place, the first big thing those guys did was to add their salaries, they did not even consult the Kenyan but they decided to raise their salaries and just like that they did it! So why not the teachers who provided them with that skills in education and knowledge they have today why not give them what their want why not make them happy sure their can bring much better brighter Kenya!
Just to make the matter worse for the past almost two years majority of our politician what they do is to move up and down campaigning for themselves do you know how much money their use moving up and down and how much of that money can be used to educate the poor Kenyan?
A few months ago there was money to increase the salaries of civil servants; the MPs increase their salaries and benefits when they feel it is appropriate for them. It was very convenient for nearly the entire government to go for the Olympics in London and what is disturbing is the rate at which our government officials are going for international trips some of which are not adding value to the general growth of the state.
As I was writting this letter today i found this post of my of my friends in Facebook and liked it because it just what i was thinking ‘’ Those of us who have time to read the famous book Shamba la Wanyama “The Animal Farm” and take a great look at our Kenyan society, we can for sure see many things resembling. A situation where there are individuals who are more equal than other, where some people cannot be questioned and that their orders are meant to be the binding law’’
Where our economy taking us now only God Knows’ I keep saying and I will say it again and again if we wanna change the future we have to start it now and work it now by doing what right and great for our children and that why my heart my mind tell me in my life the best thing I can do for this world is to help a needy child in education so I can help her or him for the better future.
This week I have been busy up and down trying to help our partnership organization in planning of their upcoming event of support the Ageing people by giving them free medical treatment, nothing is easy for the poor/needy  people  to get it and for sure I have learn a lot of this and I wonder when our world will reach to where health care is offer to everybody with cheap price, in the sometime I was watching the other day news our doctors too are on the strike, Kenyan pay a lot of money for the medical insurance cover which already enough to pay our doctors but what happening today it not fair for the ordinary Kenyan who cannot afford  special service from schooling and health care…
That why I keep saying and saying we have to rethink and work together in empowering our young one’s in education because that where all our challenges start because at the end of the day when two bulls fight who suffers –( the grass) the children who their parent cannot afford private school, our sick people who can not to get services from private hospital, our youth who are Jobless and every needy Kenya who need help from the above to achieve or get those service which now it has become nightmare.
My cry to friends and people of good will is to rethink and see where we can make change to our human development, it is too bad only the other day I WAS going through most of funding organization and try to search evaluate which organization can be able to fund us as small organization or other small community based organization, but my surprises is most of organization conditions are too high and requirement is for only who already have climbed the ladder out of poverty,
Today’s technologies help everything and make things much easy and fast but how many needy people have that opportunity to access that technology?  If you want to help the most needy person down there in village who cannot tell the different between TV and computer.. Realty can you tell me how that guy will be able to express or go online to fill the requirement so he can get fund to develop his community.
We climb ladder too fast and move very fast and forget our main goal is to lift the needy leave them there and keep feeding the rich guys pocket and making them more richer because they have what we want or give information as we want but forget who really need that help!
The world is moving so fast yes all of us too who work for humanitarian we need to move in the same direction but our ladder need to be of different not like for a business person who only his/her business goals is to gain more and more – think of those down in village where only the technology they have is phone and if they want to request for fund is only a pen and paper and if their lucky get somebody to help them type or print.
To end my point here, kindly let look our policy of funding and strategic of how we plan reaching the most needy people believe me or not if you live in Kibera for example or living and working under one dollar a day to find enough for just food and basic need if you can be able to save enough for other requirement such as cyber for internet service maybe you will be able to save one dollar a week.. Fact how long can you stay connected for only $1 (dollar)
Lastly do as you wish our world is full of potential people, people with great opportunity, career, talent and wealth but we will never or have that freedom to feel safe or protected, when others keep wishing if they can be in the same position with us! And to make our world better, peaceful and where every human feel cared we have to try lift the one we left behind by offering them the right service or need as their capacity.
Thanks --- look out for my next letter of How Youth are Mislead by luck of opportunity (been in wrong place or in wrong company just to gain acknowledge or daily bread)
 At the sometime I will be talking of what plan we have in partnership with other small youth organization (involving Youth in leading in community health and awareness, in sanitation, peace building, and role model for better society)
In God will – keep in touch and informed
