WE DARED TO DREAM AND STILL COMMITTED TO DELIVERING “A JUST, EQUITABLE AND PROGRESSIVE SOCIETY IN WHICH YOUNG PEOPLE WILL ENJOY THEIR SOCIAL, ECONOMIC AND POLITICAL OPPORTUNITIES AND RIGHTS”
Like most profound acts, the dream began with something simple. Two people kept a paper and a pen near their bed and from time to time shared in bits the simple words and desires. In 1996 the two invited five more to share their desire. They were all prepared to write, draw or jot notes about what they had seen or experienced as soon after they woke up. In some instance they experienced a kind of half-awake, half-asleep state but would state it anyway when they first woke up, so much the better. They took advantage of it!
In interpreting the dream, they asked questions and provided the answer themselves. In some instances they allowed their imagination to guide, not their intellect. Usually, the first thing that came to their mind was the most valuable. They gave birth to Youth Agenda a national Youth Organization in Kenya.
