The hidden dimension of vulnerability

image

On 15th October 2023, 0830 hours I was stopped by a lady (I call her Risper) on a wheelchair being pushed by a school going boy at St. Martin CSA gates. I greeted them but Risper was in such a hurry to ask for my financial support than in exchange for pleasantries. Apparently, I knew Risper for several years because we had rescued one of her sons from the streets but she kept pulling him back to the streets until we lost the battle. I inquired from the boy why he was not in school. The mother retorted quickly that they did not have anything to eat back at home. By now she was already growing impatient with me. I offered to support them with food for a month and reinstate the boy back to school as we work out a sustainable solution to their vulnerability.  She declined my offer and commanded the son to move on, with disappointment on her face. This is not an isolated experience. Many poor people with special vulnerability (real and crafted) are pushed to the streets of our towns by unscrupulous people to beg and pay a commission while others have found an easy source of shillings from charitable Kenyans.

Competency Based Curriculum - CBC

Competency-based curriculum (CBC) is the country’s new education system that was introduced in December 2017 to replace the 8-4-4 cycle. It plays an important role in the promotion of individual well being and acquisition of skills and capabilities to contribute meaningfully to the economy and society at large. The focus of the CBC curriculum is the potential of the child and not about memorization of content. It is about being creative, having the ability to think critically, being able to solve problems and also being able to apply the knowledge and skills gained. The CBC is a great opportunity for our children!
