Sunday 25th March gave an opportunity for the Uweza journalism club to visit Children of Kibera, one of the non-governmental organizations situated in Olympic Estate, Kibera for an exchange joint program. Upon our arrival in the afternoon, we were welcomed by one of the staff members, Prisca Mutemi . We waited for a few minutes before we got divided into two groups of boys and girls known as Lit World Club.
Together with the female members of our club, we were taken to one of the classrooms that had girls who were having their afternoon session. Today’s topic was about the seven pillars of a girl child.
The session was interesting as I got to learn that girl child, self, sisterhood, and hope are some of the pillars we need to have at all times as young people in the Kibera community since many challenges are encountered by girls. The need to be empowered with proper information is all it takes to help girls overcome temptations of getting themselves into un- healthy relationships and getting to know how to take care of oneself in cases of defilement.

Later on we had a few fun game activities which I led and everyone enjoyed learning something new from each party.
