Can you see those trees?
They’re in the Lavington area. They have water on a daily basis.
They have electricity on a daily basis. We have three days water flow. The rest of
the four days we don’t have water. Why should I get water three days and the rich man, who is just 100 metres away
from me is getting water everyday? We have no good roads. We have no proper medication.
We have no quality education in our schools. We don’t have clean water in our taps. We are all Kenyans and we are
entitled to get equal rights. But there are those big people who do other things
that I cannot do because I don’t have money. The government does not mind
about the small businesses. In fact, those big companies are owned
by those people in the government. And that makes me feel very bitter. You start asking yourself, “where did I go wrong?” Why is it that there is this family
that has a lot and me I don’t have? Let those people be the way they are
but they have to depend on us. That gap is there because I don’t
have as much money as she has. But there are some things
which she cannot do without me. The beauty of that thing, I have made. I do bead work, tapestry mats. Since I started training women in the community, I have trained more than two thousand women. There’s something I’m getting out
of my mind and giving them. I know somebody is going to
make some income out of it. And that is what we call empowerment. So that’s the most enjoyable thing I will ever talk about. Empowering my community. To help fight inequality here and across the
world click here to support Oxfam’s work. Waiting for you to click. The gap is
still there, click away. Click!
