Friday 5th 2011 was Kenyans4Kenya Day, The corporate world in the business frontier, Kenyans came together to make a difference in their homes, their communities, and Kenya, their mother land.
Those who spoke were everyday heroes, whether they are mothers, teachers, politicians, or students.
In Kenya, the image of Kenyan children starving and dying from hunger and malnutrition is certainly emotive and swiftly moves the international community to compassionate action.
Given the excruciating spectacle of death and hunger, it is easy to argue that low input, low productivity rain-fed small farm agricultural production systems are the culprit and must be replaced with production systems that utilize fertilizers, high yielding hybrid seeds, pesticides and irrigation.

Our hopes on what the future may be like are increasingly filled with uncertainty.
We have our own challenges, we still demand for prosperity, employment health, lifestyle, and very friendly environment. However, HIV/AIDS and other diseases, climate change unfavorable policies and lack of self awareness lead them to non involvement in development activities.
As Kenyans we can still do more for people like you and me, "more" means contributing more money sending more food and medicine to save more lives and spreading the buzz to get our friends and community to join the movement to end hunger.
