Find me unafraid Book By Kennedy Odede and Jessica Posner
Find Me Unafraid
tells the uncommon love story between two uncommon people whose collaboration sparked a successful movement to transform the lives of vulnerable girls and the urban poor. With a Foreword by Nicholas Kristof.
This is the story of two young people from completely different worlds: Kennedy Odede from Kibera, the largest slum in Africa, and Jessica Posner from Denver, Colorado. Kennedy foraged for food, lived on the street, and taught himself to read with old newspapers. When an American volunteer gave him the work of Mandela, Garvey, and King, teenaged Kennedy decided he was going to change his life and his community. He bought a soccer ball and started a youth empowerment group he called Shining Hope for Communities (SHOFCO). Then in 2007, Wesleyan undergraduate Jessica Posner spent a semester abroad in Kenya working with SHOFCO. Breaking all convention, she decided to live in Kibera with Kennedy, and they fell in love.Their connection persisted, and Jessica helped Kennedy to escape political violence and fulfill his lifelong dream of an education, at Wesleyan University.
The alchemy of their remarkable union has drawn the support of community members and celebrities alike—The Clintons, Mia Farrow, and Nicholas Kristof are among their fans—and their work has changed the lives of many of Kibera’s most vulnerable population: its girls. Jess and Kennedy founded Kibera’s first tuition-free school for girls, a large, bright blue building, which stands as a bastion of hope in what once felt like a hopeless place. But Jessica and Kennedy are just getting started—they have expanded their model to connect essential services like health care, clean water, and economic empowerment programs. They’ve opened an identical project in Mathare, Kenya’s second largest slum, and intend to expand their remarkably successful program for change.
Ultimately this is a love story about a fight against poverty and hopelessness, the transformation made possible by a true love, and the power of young people to have a deep impact on the world.

Things My Son Needs to Know About The World by Fredrik BackmanKShs1,390.00Add to cart
‘You can be whatever you want to be, but that’s nowhere near as important as knowing that you can be exactly who you are
In between the sleep-obsessed lows and oxytocin-fuelled highs, Backman takes a step back to share his own experience of fatherhood and how he navigates such unchartered territory.
Part memoir, part manual, part love letter to his son, this book relays the big and the small lessons in life.
As he watches his son take his first steps into the world, he teaches him how to navigate both love – and IKEA – and tries to explain why, sometimes, his dad might hold his hand just a little bit too tightly.

An unmarked grave By Winfred Kawira MicheniKShs1,090.00Add to cart
The Unmarked Grave and Other Stories is a collection of mostly factual stories and a few fictitious ones handed down to me by my late grandmother. Though fictional, there’s a clear lesson that’s still applicable in our modern day society. All other factual stories eg The Wingless Butterfly, Killed by Love and Holier Than Thou happened in the author’s life and environment. The author’s keen eye and ear are always on the ground, and therefore, by documenting all those unfortunate events requires the society to acknowledge them and act on them to get an amicable solution.
Everyone is sure to relate to one or two stories either directly or indirectly. The choice of diction is relatively simple and downright accurate and descriptive. Once you embark on reading the text, you will not be able to put the book down.
