This week our life skills trainer initiated a discussion among our cohort 2 participants about the character of the contemporary Kenya youth, the resources they have at their disposal and the various opportunities the youths can tap in, in order to achieve their dreams.
After setting the floor he introduce to them the “Life Skills Bridge” using the “Crocodile and Sharks” aspect who are usually found at the valley-separating the two Mountains (Mt. Challenges and Mt. Dreams/Aspirations) where most youths who lack these essential 21st Century skills ended up being eaten by the Sharks, thus unable to achieve their Dreams.
It was an eye-opener to most of our participants as at the end they all took a pledge to refrain from the culture of always complaining and blaming others for their misery in life yet they have resources they can tap in and a few opportunities for grab.
