Nightmares of horrendous unrealized dreams.

Youth  in this country have all talents but the problem is that they lack avenues through which they can express their talents. The few clubs that are existing face the challenge of funding and tribalism. For instance, clubs for marathon competitors are dominated by members from one tribe and a person from any other part of the country find it difficult to join them.

The football sector face more challenges, especially at the national level. The criteria for selection of players for the national team, harambee stars is not clear. This is because there are many talented youngsters that appear nowhere in the national team.

What happens to a dream deferred? Ask any pupil/student what they want to be in future and the most likely answers include; lawyers, doctors, engineers, journalists, teachers among other well paying professions. The challenge comes in when the university joint admissions board (JAB), frustrates dreams of applicants by assigning them courses they never thought of right from childhood.

As a result we get professionals who do not have their work at heart, who in the long run end up administering poor quality services to the public.

Those outside the education system, find it hard to follow their dreams to stardom. This is because there are no avenues or sporting clubs through which they can exercise talent. This is even worse in rural areas. Those with means maneuver their way to desired occupations but the poverty stricken end up more desperate.

 The government, religious bodies, NGO’s and other well wishers should arise and come to the rescue of the upcoming stars in rural areas in this country. More clubs should be formed and funded. If this is put into practice, it will help to fight idleness and boredom amongst youths.

Too much ambition breaks a man and too little ambition takes him nowhere, so dear brothers and sisters it’s good to have a dream. We’ve reached a time in history where individuals need to be more flexible. It is not all about our interests and desires that matter, but what is available. Not forgetting that the job market has become very competitive with limited chances.
