    As indicated in my earlier inquiry, I come from a region that is underdeveloped and citizens rarely participate in national issues. They are socio-economically marginalized; no internet access and other relevant infrastructure to promote human dignity. Recently, my former elementary school has hit headlines in Kenya both in TV and print media as the school recorded the highest number of girl child sexual abuse and early pregnancies that led to school dropouts.
    At individual level, I have mobilized schools head teachers to conduct peer educators training in regard to reproductive health for a few select pupil leaders who will cascade it to the rest of peers in their schools. I am also setting up satellite internet connectivity at the community resource centre which I have set up, as currently am using modems that are often unreliable.
    If I can benefit from your micro Grant , it will boost the internet services at the centre, add more desk top computers for more youth n women to rise their unheard voices through online platforms e.g. Facebook and YouTube.

    I look forward to partnering with you for a positive change in our society.
