My name is Dorcus Andati Kangu born and raised in Kenya. For long time I wondered what is life. I ask myself this question many a time but anytime I get closer to the “answer,” I get confused even more. This is because I have met a well-to-do dweller telling me life is hard the same answer you will expect from an insolvent person. Do we really have to be rich or poor to have a well defined life? What exactly are we supposed to achieve so we can live our life to the fullest? Definitely this question means everything but differently to all of us because many of the people die before realizing what they were really up to.
If a man has not discovered something that he will die for, he isn’t fit to liveMartin Luther King, Jr.
“People give rise to people.” This is the truth that I have come into reality with. This is the very reason I have devoted the rest of my life to serving humanity. This is the most fulfilling part of my life. It make my life whole.
Walking down the streets and the slums of Mombasa-Likoni one will wonder when did the rain start beating us. Who are we really to blame? The society? The community? The government? Or are we to blame the gods? There has ever been an increasing number of byway children, school dropouts, early pregnancies, drugs abuse and trafficking amongst minors, orphans, windows, HIV cases spreading like bush fire, disabilities due to accidents, poverty, social crimes et all…
You will agree with us at Rays of Hope that its not a coincidence that all these things are happening or have happened in Kenya while most of us decide to give it a dead eye. The root cause of all this problems according to the research and the indicators from the same community are, lack of sensitization to the right group of people, failure to provide timely necessary skills to families so they can sustain themselves economically, improper life skills training that leads to poor decision making, lack of Reproductive health education to girls, improper love and care to the less privileged in the society among many other reasons.
Rays of Hope is a Charity, apolitical, non-profit organization that is devoted to addressing the above problems. Under our watch we have kickstarted a number of activities while engaging different members of the community who are less fortunate. In our small ways we have resorted to well structure sustainable models that seek to treat the following.
