• A Trip to the National Museum

    Recently, 50 students from our after-school tutoring program spent an educational Saturday at the Nairobi National Museum.  When they returned from the field trip, they wrote compositions and drew pictures about what they saw, experienced, and learned.  Below are some of their drawing and stories about the trip: 

    “It was on a Friday when we discussed about the trip for Uweza.  Our teachers were delighted to tell us that the trip would be free.  The trip was to be on Saturday at 8.00 am and the pupils broke into a dance upon hearing that.  When the time of calling names of the pupils who will go the trip, I was happy as a lark to hear my name being called.

    When Saturday arrived, we departed for the museum.  We paid the entrance and entered the building.  At first, we saw many kinds of birds which have been dried up.  I learned that a dove can lay sixteen to eighteen eggs.  Secondly, we saw different animals such as elephants, buffaloes, zebras, giraffes and lions. The elephant I saw was very huge and I was very happy because I had never ever seen an elephant since I was born.”
    - Duncan Jacktone


    “That Saturday morning, I went to my bedroom and put on my beautiful clothes.  In a twinkle of an eye, my mother came with a strong breakfast which was fried eggs, sausage, jam, and some slices of bread.  Then I woke my sister and we went to tuition to wait for others to come.

    On our way to the museum, we saw so many things like Kenyatta International Conference Center and the Parliament of Kenya.  When we arrived, we started seeing the pots of the past and we saw the people of the past and how they started being like the people of today.  Then, we took a powerful lunch and went to the snake park.  We saw many snakes, some were long and some were short.  We went home and the trip was good.”
    - Simion Okibiego


    “When Saturday reached, I woke up early in the morning and went to the bathroom to take my shower.  The shower made me as cool as  cucumber.  Then I went to my bedroom and wore my nice dress with pink dots.  I heard my friends calling my name so I took my breakfast and we walked along the road as we met with our friends and classmates.

    When we reached the museum, we were told to remove all the things that we were chewing.  We saw monkeys, leopard, and a zebra.  We were told that we were going to see a live fish and a snake.  We were afraid to see live snake and that as my first day to ever see a snake.”
    - Beryl Achieng


    “It was on a Friday when I left school and went to Uweza.  I found everyone was happy and excited.  All of us kept so quiet that you could hear the earth rotating.  Teacher Harriet stood up and then she told us, “tomorrow, we would like to take you to the Nairobi National Museum.” That night, I kept turning in my bed.  Finally, the day reached.  I took a cold shower, which left me as fresh as a daisy.

    I knew it was a place of discovery.  On the first floor, we could see different animals such as lion, elephant, cheetahs, hyenas, and many others. I learned the difference between a leopard and a cheetah.  On the second floor, we learned how our ancestors lived many years ago.  We went and ate our snacks for about thirty minutes then we played a game of hide and seek.  Before we went home, we went to a restaurant, where we had a delicious lunch.  We came back full of joy. I will never forget that day until the Sahara desert becomes wet.”

  • To All Uweza Members

    The following words of wisdom were written by Uweza sponsored student Doron Omondi and submitted to the suggestion box at our Community Center.

    To all Uweza members:

    Sometimes you can have the smallest role in the production and still make a big impact.

    A wise person does something at once, what a fool does at last.  Both do the same thing; only at different times.

    To Uweza candidates:

    During exam times, do not press the panic button and also don’t wait for the last minute.  Remember the early bird catches the worm.

    To Uweza candidates, soccer players, and all other students and pupils:

    Happiness keeps you sweet, trials make you strong, sorrow makes you human and failure keeps you human.

    Excellence can be obtained if we:
    i. Risk more than others think is safe.
    ii. Dream more than others think is practical.  A dream is a powerful psychological weapon that enables an individual to focus on worthwhile pursuits in life. 
    iii. Expect more than others think is possible.  If you were meant to fly with the eagle, then why are you walking with the chickens?

    If you want to go far, you can go; but if you want to go further, you need others.  Keep that in mind.

    - Augustine Angira, age 18 from Kianda, Kibera

    “I like coming to Uweza because it motivates me to tacked the challenges which I come across as a girl who is in Kibera through the lessons we get every Friday evenings.  We learn how to become responsible in life, even if we do come from the slums.  We gain self-esteem and appreciate who we are and know that we can go on with our lives and be like other children in the world.”
    - Cecilia Owendi, age 19 from Kambi Muru, Kibera

  • When I Join Secondary School

    The below essays were written by Kibera high school students as part of their application to our sponsorship program. We currently have seventeen applicants and about two to three available spots in the program.  You can increase the number of students are able to to sponsor by fully sponsoring a student with a donation of $600/year or by making a one-time contribution of any amount to the sponsorship fund. To support a student’s high school education through Uweza, please visit http://www.uwezakenya.org/our-work/sponsorship

    When I join secondary school,  I will be the first person to do so in the whole of our family. Imagine, in your whole family there is nobody who has ever set his or her foot in school. But I, I was the lucky one to go to school. My mother always told me that I am the apple of the family and that everyone was looking up to me. My father was the only one who was educated. But when he found out that our family was poor, he ran and left my mother with a pregnancy of six months.

    But because God was watching, my mother was able to deliver me well. My two sisters are now walking here and there looking for someone who can educate them but they have not found anyone yet. My mother brought us out of difficulties by selling things beside the road so that we would find something to eat. If on that day, God won’t give my mother anything, we would accept it and sleep.

    Finally, I did my standard eight and I was the first one in our family to get above three hundred marks. But because my mother did not have any money, I just stayed home. But she did not lose hope on me. She came to Uweza Foundation where she was told that there is a chance for your child to be educated. That’s why I am begging you to take me so that I can go to secondary school to continue with my studies so that I can manage to get my family out of the poverty and suffering they are going through.

    In primary, I would sometimes work hard and get good marks. But I would say that anyway, even if I work hard, there is nobody who can educate me. But when I was told that hard work pays, I started working hard so that my work could pay me one day in my future. I promise you when I go to Form 1 [first year of high school], you will not be disappointed in me. I will work very hard until you will be proud of me.

    Even if I don’t get this chance, please try to pay for me even if it is half of my school fees. I would thank you so much because my dream is to go to secondary school. I know you won’t let me down. Thank you.


    When I join secondary school, I’m going to work hard in my studies in order for me to pursue my career, which is to become a surgeon in future. I will work hard in order to see to it that I become a better person in future. Through education, I know I’m going to fight poverty and also help other children in Kibera who are less privileged to get education.

    I will work extra hard in my studies so that I pass and go to university and pursue my career. Education will better my life and I will see to it that I become a responsible and good citizen in the future. Education will help me contribute to the positive development of our country and also to fight a lot of challenges that come about due to lack of education. Through education, I will be able to better the lives of my parents and also other members of the community.

    I’m willing to be obedient, respectful and humble to my teachers so that I get everything they will teach me. I’m going to be disciplined because discipline is the ladder to success and prosperity in education. I will make sure I am cooperative and ask questions in class so as to understand better everything that I’m taught.

    When I join secondary school, I’m going to be committed with school work and see to it that I attain a mean grade in KCSE that will take me to university to further my education. I will ensure that I give equal attention to all subjects so that I get a good grade in all subjects.

    I’m willing to be in school always so as to be able to cover the syllabus and excel in my studies. I will be punctual so that I don’t miss any lessons because missing lessons will make me lose a lot and therefore lower my mean grade in my final exams. I promise to be a good student and very hardworking because hard work never goes unrewarded and I know my efforts will never go to waste.

  • Sponsorship and Friendship in Nairobi, Kenya

    This blog post is written by Laura Mayer, a friend and supporter of Uweza.  In August 2013, she had the rare opportunity to visit Kibera and meet high school student Lorna, who sponsors through our Sponsorship Program.  Below are her reflections on the day in Kibera and what it was like to visit Lorna’s home and school and see firsthand the impact of her monthly contribution.

    The best stories we can ever tell are those that start as a grain and evolve almost independently. This one is that kind of a funny story…

    After reading a Vogue Magazine article about actress Rooney Mara in spring of 2013 (yes, Vogue!), I was intrigued to learn more about Uweza Foundation, the NGO she created when she merged her organization with another started by friend Jen Sapitro in Nairobi’s Kibera slum. I had long known about Kibera through documentaries and articles, and before I knew it, I was writing Jen, the Managing Director, about volunteer possibilities, an area that did not yet exist. Nonetheless, the foundation sounded fantastic and I was soon sponsoring a high school girl named Lorna!

    Fast-forward a couple of months as I was planning my annual August “big trip” adventure and decided on doing volunteer work with Habitat for Humanity in Kenya. Of course, this presented the opportunity to visit Uweza to meet the amazing Jen, see Kibera and, most incredibly, actually meet Lorna!

    While I am a seasoned traveler and have been a privileged guest in modest, even makeshift homes in many faraway places, I wasn’t at all sure how I would perceive my first experience walking through Kibera, infamous as it is. I first learned of it in the 2005 film The Constant Gardener and haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since. How do people survive in such an environment? Why does it continue to exist? What are the houses really like? How dangerous is it? Will the smell be overwhelming? Will I just break down and cry? These questions flew through my head as I prepared for my trip. 


    As a high school teacher, I was also able to work the visit into my end-of-the-year curriculum, educating my own students on Kibera, poverty in general, and Lorna in particular. They wrote her letters, careful to be sensitive but also asking many typical teenaged questions. I was really excited.

    My first experience was meeting Jen at a busy Nairobi shopping center to take a matatu (mini-van/bus) into Kibera proper. Jen! Incredible woman. She moved to the outskirts of Kibera in 2011 and with her terrific team, she has somehow navigated the vagaries of creating and running an NGO!

    First stop was the Uweza Community Center where the football team’s jerseys were hanging out to dry and many assorted art projects crashed into each other. There are three main buildings: the office, which Jen shares with Mathew and other staff; a classroom for various clubs and journalism classes and another for art classes. The walls of the center are literally filled to brimming with amazing paintings done by the girls and boys in their art classes, turning the entire center into a gallery.

    I felt giddy when Jen said Lorna was there waiting to meet me and we first sat and talked, reading over the letters from my students together. She was a beautiful 16-year-old girl, shyly hiding under her black head scarf. After a half hour or so, we made the walk to her uncle’s house through the jam-packed bustling roads of Kibera. What I saw was amazing and while I more or less knew what to expect, the neighborhood was so much more a viable, energetic and thriving community! It was one of those moments you wish you had an implanted video camera in your head, so much to take in, so many people, everyone busy. The shops and food stalls were bustling, a hardware shop had an immense inventory meticulously displayed along the ground (better stocked, I might add, than my local store in NYC!). The incredible aromas of cooking food pervaded the area, which was decidedly not at all what I had expected to be smelling! The energy of Kibera is that of a fully realized, functioning community, a place where everyone seems to know each other, help each other, share with each other.

    Once at Lorna’s home, I felt somehow familiar. Though I was of course struggling with the urge to photograph everything, mainly in order to be able to share the experience with my curious students back home, I managed to remain focused on our conversation: this generous man’s story of taking in his young niece to avoid an inevitable arranged marriage, the struggle to pay her secondary school fees on his earnings as a shoemaker while also raising his 4 younger children. (His wife still lives in their village.) Joseph himself missed out on any post-3rd-grade schooling as the second son – his older brother was typically afforded the money it cost to be educated – and he is determined not to let that happen to Lorna or his own children.

    laurablog4Laura, Lorna, and her Uncle Joseph

    The house was a typical one-room affair, the floor hard-pressed dirt, the walls the kind of mud brick adobe over bamboo frames you see in photos, corrugated tin roof. Not all that different, really from any village home. Walls decorated with calendars – five calendars! Lorna and Joseph sat on his bed while Jen, Matthew and I sat on small stools (or were they buckets? I was too distracted by the experience to even acknowledge what it was I sitting on!)  Outside, we again met the nieces and nephews as well as several neighbor children, all giggling and jostling to stand next to me for a photo. The local latrine was across the courtyard.

    We made our way back through the community, passing hair salons, charcoal vendors and fruit stands, all the while children waving or running right up to us, “Hello, mzungu!” and shaking our hands or just touching us and giggling. Our next stop was Lorna’s school, Raila Educational Center, which was closed for August holiday, but the weekend guard allowed us to walk through and tour the many buildings. Lorna showed us the secondary school buildings, desks stacked up for August cleaning, and the elementary rooms. Each classroom was its own small building, very neat, all centered around a huge football field where boys were playing. The caretaker was thrilled to meet us, and on our way back out, realizing that Jen and Mathew work for Uweza and that I pay Lorna’s school fees, he thanked us over and over again for doing this, urging the importance of education.

    laurablog5Classroom at Raila Educational Centre

    Back at the community center, I was lucky enough sit in on the Saturday Girls’ Club with Lorna and about 9 of her friends, all teenagers, today discussing very articulately and frankly the changes boys go through in puberty. The session was led by a brilliant young teacher named Aliyah, who spoke in a fluctuating combination of English and Swahili. Though I found it tricky to follow the conversation moment to moment, I was utterly impressed with their knowledge and confidence. The girls were not in any way phased by my presence, though they did occasionally smile at me and giggle. One of them wrote the notes on a chalkboard and they discussed what their topic should be for next time.


    Too soon it was time to go and after hugging Lorna goodbye and encouraging her to write back to my students, Jen walked with me back to the matatu pickup area where we jammed ourselves into the bits of remaining space in the mini-van as a downpour started to turn the dusty red roads of Kibera into rushing rivulets.

  • Life in Kibera: Toilets

    by Brightone Asena

    Sanitation is one of the most important things to human beings and to animals.  This is because it determines a lot when maintained or not.  Kibera slum, which is the second largest slum in the world after Soweto of South Africa, has lots of challenges including lack of proper toilets, something that greatly affects the sanitation of this area. When we look at the state of toilets in Kibera,  we are left with lots of questions on who should take responsibility of ensuring that despite the poor state of housing, the residents at least have access to proper and clean toilets.


    It is absurd that most of the  plots do not have toilets. A large plot housing as many as fifty families without a single toilet results in the occupants of the plots resorting for other options of disposing off the human waste.  There rises the famous toilets that have for many years been associated with Kibera slum- the “flying toilets”. This is a situation whereby one helps themselves in a plastic bag and have it flying in the air, without caring about its final landing place.

    Most of the toilets are constructed near sewages, and terraces that are meant to pass the dirty water. They are built here so as to flow away the waste from the human beings that drops almost continuously. This may cause may cause outbreaks and spread of diseases such as cholera.

    Other many people have also resolved to using the hidden sights along the railway line, to relieve themselves. They do it innocently, not knowing the danger and risk they cause. The best example is the bridge near Olympic stage. Due to much urine and other human waste being directed to the railway line, incidents of trains breaking down or even the rail breaking have been reported at this particular point atleast once in a while and during the rainy season twice in a month and it is quite expensive to repair broken railwayline.



    I got to talk to some of the landlords and ladies in Kibera, and to my surprise, they bore the same response. “Kwani tutajengea watu nyumba za kuishi na tuweke pia choo? Hiyo pesa hakuna, sababu hata wengine hawalipi rent, na wakilipa ni shilingi alfu moja mia tano. Hiyo itatosha kujenga na kuvuta hiyo uchafu ya choo kila mara cho inajaa?” (Translation: Do you expect us to build build for these people rental rooms and at the same time build toilets? We don’t have that money, infact some of them do not pay rent, and if they pay, it is one thousand five hundred shillings per month. That can’t be enough to build the latrines and when they are full, hiring of those people who empty the latrines!”

    This leaves one wondering why people put up structures in the name of houses yet they can’t build toilets or even latrines to be used by the tenants, who desperately need somewhere to call home.

    by Collins Etemesi

    Under normal circumstances, a human being who values sanity in each duty he/she undertakes will always embrace hygiene. As it has always been said, charity begins at home, the same applies to our cleanliness.   Back to our area of living, which is Kibera, despite  the poor condition of most houses, every landlord tries as much as possible to make them appealing to the eyes. But what the landlords forget to put up are toilets or even latrines that will be used by their tenants.

    It is on this basis that of poor or lack of latrines that the issue of poor sanitation arises highly. To some extent, in order to salvage people from these pathetic conditions, there has been the construction of all forms of latrines that are used by the residents.   Despite their availability, they can’t meet the high demand in this highly populated area of the city.


    A word with the local administration left so many questions in my mind. I was left wondering why one is allowed to build rental rooms that are to act as homes for the many people who come to the urban areas with a hope of finding jobs, but they end up in slums, yet he can’t have a place to put up a pit latrine.  To my surprise, the chief will rarely visit a place before giving the to-be landlord the go ahead to living structures, hence the issue of lack of latrines in most plots.

    As a result, one has to be very careful when moving around some of the areas in Kibera, as you may easily step on plastic-slippery bags that will see you rolling down because of the contents in them.  It is the plea of the residents that the authority ensures  that before one is allowed to put up living structures, they build a latrine first and include the cost in the rent, instead of building the rooms without caring about how the tenants to be will respond to nature’s call.

  • Advice to our fellow Kenyan youth


    by Billy Shikoli

    It is another wonderful time of the year, when we have broken for the long December holidays. It has been a tough year for students, as learning was interrupted due to elections and teacher’s strike over pay.  Some of the students were not lucky enough to see the long holidays come, as they died under different circumstances, including road accidents.

    Despite all these, I want to thank God for the far He has brought us and even given us the opportunity to share a piece of advice, that will hopefully guide us throughout the holidays.

    For the intended persons (youth), I hope you are fine. As we all know, December holidays are the most enjoyable holidays, as we get to unite with almost all our family members and welcome the new year. For students especially in slums, we need to remember that education is the key thing that will better our lives. We should always practice patience and remember our books. Let us make books our shield and pens our arrow.

    We need to understand our parents, what they go through to ensure we get what we need and most of all, obey them so that our days on earth may be long, just as the bible says.

    Let us be cautious of the groups and friends we keep. May we choose friends that will help us grow spiritually, morally and even academically. It is time we shall be interacting with smokers, alcohol users, thieves, and many more characters in the society. It is my prayer that God gives us the knowledge we require to overcome the temptations that will come our way as we celebrate.

    For our sisters, please be cautioned. Men are out there to see you perish all in the name of love. The right man will come to you at the right time. He will come when you are through with your education and working somewhere. If you lack anything, please talk to your parents, if they can’t afford, there are many organisation around that are out to help you. If you read this and you are not enrolled in any of Uweza programs, do so. It is the best place you can ever be.

    Be blessed and God bless you all.



    by Yvonne Kweyu

    The year 2013 has indeed been one of the toughest years I have ever witnessed. It’s been full of activities.  It is a year that saw the learning calender disrupted, with elections, teachers strike and most of all prices of the basic commodities shooting high, leaving the mwananchi with little or no form of income most affected.

    Many youths were also killed here in Kibera for being suspected of stealing. Some were as little as 12-years old but they found themselves in the wrong hands of hungry residents who could not spare their lives.

    As we embark on our chrismas and December holidays at large, let us be cautious of the challenges that the holidays will come with.  It is the time for us students and youths to show desire to what we want to be in future. Let us make hay while the sun shines. For us students, we have been promoted to the next class. Let us not forget our books. They are the only way to get better grades come next year.

    The devil is on the loose, to confuse us with earthly things. Let us remember God as He has always done to us. We will face many challenges at this time.   Some of us will be exploited to drugs, sexual matters and even robbery, depending with the company we shall be keeping. Easy come is easy go. Let us not be lured into engaging ourselves in theft or even prostitution. We will never get enough of what we desire. Even the richest people in the world still work hard to make more riches.

    Let us not engage in immorality just to identify ourselves with the bad company of friends. AIDS is real and has no cure. One must not engage in habits that will put them at risk of contracting the virus. We need to be instruments that will shed light to the next generation. How will we do it if we become prostitutes, thugs, smugglers, or even street children? I believe that we have a life that we ought to be taking care of, and also obey our parents and guardians.

    Let us all be humbled and God will lift us high.

    I wish you all A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A BLESSED 2014.


    Yvonne and Billy are members of the Uweza Journalism Club.

  • Exam Finishers Celebration

    Last week, 37 Class 8 students and 14 Form 4 students from various Uweza programs finished their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education exams, respectively.   This year’s candidates had the opportunity to come together at the Uweza Community Center to celebrate the many years they have been in school working hard in preparation for their national examinations.

    party2Class 8 graduate Margaret Akinyi who participates in Golden Girls Power and Uweza Cultural Troupe

    party3Form 4 graduate Thaddeus Otieno who plays for Uweza’s senior soccer team

    Uweza management made arrangements to bring all the students together to celebrate and reflect on their accomplishment by buying biscuits, soda and two congratulatory cakes, one for the Class 8 students and another one for the Form 4 candidates.  Many Uweza staff were also in attendance at the celebration. 


    The candidates extended their gratitude to Uweza Foundation for the endless support they offered, plus the teachers who have always been available to help them do their studies and revision. The candidates expressed confidence that they will perform well and be able to join best secondary schools and universities.


    On their part, Uweza staff including the tutors, congratulated the candidates for their great achievement.  Many students drop out of school before finishing primary and/or secondary school and these students have a lot to be proud of.   

    Uweza staff also emphasized to the candidates to keep good company, avoid drug use and obey their parents as they have always done.  They were also encouraged to feel free to join any of the activities offered by Uweza, to keep themselves busy, and learn more as they await the results.  Class 8 results will be out in December and Form 4 results should be out by February. We look forward to continuing to support and encourage the graduates to be their best selves and follow their dreams.
