In the heart of Njoro – Nakuru, during my early twenties, my days were a relentless dance between two vastly different worlds. By night, I toiled away in the frigid cold, slinging coffee mugs to weary souls seeking warmth and solace. And by day, I was a dedicated student at Egerton University, attending Biochemistry lectures that stretched my mental faculties […]

A few days ago, someone asked, “Why Kakamega Forest when Kisumu County needs trees too?” Let me address this concern. Kakamega Forest isn’t just a local treasure; it plays a role on a regional scale.

We often look for it in different places – quick thrills, instant gratification, validation – only to discover that true happiness is an emotion that can only be felt.

One of the most exhilarating moments I have experienced this round was during a riveting class session with my students. I posed a challenging question to the class, but instead of a prompt response, a deafening silence filled the room. A few students finally admitted that they did not know the answer, but I was not deterred. With a spark […]


Everybody is putting up a show, it is hard to come by mentors. If you spot one, keep them close visualizing the images of Karate Kid and Mr. Miyagi. Mentors share their knowledge, skills or experience to help another develop and grow. They help one gain new perspectives in life. Similarly mentorship helps mentors accelerate their  development. Mentee, having someone […]


Discovered For Who? The water body’s name was dependent on what side of its shores you stood before it became Lake Victoria. On its eastern shores, it was Nam Lolwe.
