Health-Kenya: From Bangkok, They Brought Hope for Millions Living With Aids
Smoke from open fires roasting slabs of meat and maize cobs rises alongside a rutted, dusty road in Kangemi, a slum north-west of Kenya's capital Nairobi. Scrawny chickens scratch in the dirt; goats gather in plastic-strewn alleyways to feed on rotting piles of rubbish, competing for space with scores of 'matatus' or minibus taxis.

However, the poll reveals that while moms are confident in their ability to raise good citizens, they lack confidence in our nation's ability to provide the best for their children.

Men finally cleaning up their messes
Men are taking a long overdue look in the mirror, and many don't like what they see. How could they have thought that wrinkled pleated chinos and shapeless shirts ever counted as fashion - or were even attractive? Clothes don't quite make the man, but some men - especially 20- and 30-somethings - are realizing they can help, especially in the confidence and self-esteem departments.
