Rural Conectivity

Ever thought of how our rural folks receive internet? Its quiet shocking that most of the rural areas are not connected with internet. They live comfortably in their villages with no internet access. Its a big kudos to Kenya's Youth enterprise fund that has launched internet kiosks in the rural areas to help the youth access information.

The pride of maasais

Maasai are the southernmost Nilotic speakers and are linguistically most directly related to the Turkana and Kalenjin who live near Lake Turkana in west central Kenya. According to Maasai oral history and the archaeological record, they also originated near Lake Turkana. Maasai are pastoralist and have resisted the urging of the Tanzanian and Kenyan governments to adopt a more sedentary lifestyle. Read More>>>>>

What is a Dinosaur?

Tyranosaurus skeleton


Dinosaur lived during a time when there was existence of very many types of reptiles, this era was called Age of reptiles and the world had thousand of dinosaur species. It is said that some of the reptiles had wings some lived on land and others lived in the waters.
Many people thought that all this creatures were dinosaurs but that’s not correct. Dinosaurs were a special kind of reptile, different from all others.

What made the dinosaurs different were the way their hips formed and the way they stood and walked. A reptile such as a lizard or turtle stands with its legs sprawled out to the sides and its body touching the ground, to move, it creeps along with its underside usually dragging on the ground. But a dinosaur stood and walked with its legs straight under its body and its body held off the ground.

The first kind of dinosaurs probably all walked upright on their two back legs most of the time, later many kinds of dinosaurs had become so huge and heavy that they could not walk on two legs but needed four to support their weight. Even so, they still walked on all fours legs straight, holding their bodies well up off the ground, jus as an elephant does.

Dinosaurs were also land animals there were no sea-dwelling dinosaurs and no dinosaurs with wings. So if any one asks you what a dinosaur was tell him/her that dinosaurs were all land dwelling reptiles that walked with their legs straight and their bodies up off the ground. They were unlike most other kinds of reptiles that lived then and now. They were special and there is no reptile the least bit like them in the world today!

CLIMATE CHANGE IN KITUI

Hi guys i am just from Kitui North and South to do film on the devastating climate change that has not only rocked our World but also our own Ukambani region. I am well versed with the current situation the community are going through, Kitui residents wake up every morning only to walk for more than 10 km in search of 'salty' water women and children are the greater majority in this water searching activity
Owning a donkey in Kitui is equivalent to driving a posh car because its an asset that one has to have and the more you have the richer you are and the easier your living conditions are.


We at Arid Land Information Network (ALIN)are joining hands to stop this massive destruction of our environment before its too late.Lets join together this Friday, 16th October,2009 in Kyuso District to sensitize the public on wise use of our environment before its too late. Lets join hands and stop this climate change yes we can.....

my community

It is devastating to watch my people loosing thousands of their cattle to the drought every day as the sun dawns it leaves behind more than five cattle dead, it is surprising that my people are selling these herds at a throw away price.Ooh Lord i do ask you to intervene.....
