My name is Zipporah Muthoni and I come from an area called Gachui Village in Dagoretti, Nairobi. In my village, they are so many idlers who like staying in small or large groups and from about 2pm and they start chewing ‘Miraa’, smoking Marijuana or ‘bhang’ and drinking coffee.

In my life, I have being facing many challenges such as, poverty and serious illnesses, and God has always been taking good care of me. By keeping our bodies in tip top shape, we can be able to do God’s work the way he intended. If you suffer from hatred or abuse your body with bad habits such as taking drugs and prostitution, or find yourself doing things you don’t understand or value.
Accidents in Kenya
Written by Josephine wanjiru
In our country there are so many road accidents that whole families can be wiped out. In one year we have lost very many lives: parents have lost their children and children have also lost their mothers and fathers. One day I lost my uncle in a road accident near my home. In Kenya, our roads are so busy that pedestrians are constantly at risk of being knocked down.
Drug and Substance Abuse
Written by Esther Mbuli Musyoka
My names are Esther Mbuli Musyoka, I am 20 years old. I live in Kawangware. In our village, our youth are experiencing a lot of challenges. The reason why I say so is because, our boys are engaging in alcohol, bhang, smoking and chewing of miraa. They get the money to buy these drugs from stealing from people’s shops or attacking people on the road during the day or at night.
