Current Events Discussion Group

A number of very serious challenges confront Kenyans: critical food and water shortages; high youth unemployment, crime, poverty, disease, systemic corruption and a dysfunctional coalition government —just to name a few. It’s important for our youth to be aware of these issues. We do that through a current events discussion group. Each participant reviews an assigned article from the daily paper which is then discussed by the group. Critical thinking and analysis is encouraged. The kids really enjoy these sessions—they add to their knowledge and understanding of the world around them, build their self confidence and improve their language and speaking skills as they debate and express their opinions on these important issues. I have really enjoyed these sessions and they will continue weekly throughout the year.
