    In keeping with this week’s theme, the script of the week focuses on youth. This script looks at a creative approach to the problem of drug abuse and poverty among the youth in Kibera slum, Nairobi, Kenya. It is based on real interviews. A local community-based organization initiated an empowerment program that has trained youth in entrepreneurship and fostering peace.

    The script was written by Charles Kemboi, and was a prizewinner in our recent script-writing competition on Healthy communities. Charles is a producer at Shine 103.1 FM, Daystar University’s student radio station.
