Damaris Moragwa Nattydam sent a message to the members of FHOK Youth Centre Nairobi.


A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said: 'I am blind, please help.' There were only a few coins in the hat.
A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words.

Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy. That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were. The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, 'Were you the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?'

The man said, 'I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a different way.'
What he had written was: 'Today is a beautiful day and I cannot see it.'

Do you think the first sign and the second sign were saying the same thing?

Of course both signs told people the boy was blind. But the first sign simply said the boy was blind. The second sign told people they were so lucky that they were not blind. Should we be surprised that the second sign was more effective?

Moral of the Story: Be thankful for what you have. Be creative. Be innovative. Think differently and positively.

Invite others towards good with wisdom. Live life with no excuse and love with no regrets. When life gives you a 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 1000 reasons to smile. Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear. Keep the faith and drop the fear.

Great men say, 'Life has to be an incessant process of repair and reconstruction, of discarding evil and developing goodness…. In the journey of life, if you want to travel without fear, you must have the ticket of a good conscience.'

The most beautiful thing is to see a person smiling…
And even more beautiful is, knowing that you are the reason behind it!!!

Visual communication

No Photoshop here! How can someone install a sign post inverted and expect people to see it and read it? some simple things that people take for granted but have direct impact on how we navigate through our daily activities. Lets respect the visual communication design for those that doesn't know it.

No body is an 'island' we need each other and we need to work as a team..

If birds do it ( Team work), who are we not to recognize it?

Express yourself!...

This weekend is the start of the English premier league that takes most of the African fans by storm. I like the game of football so much and I have been playing football since I was 9 years. The only thing that makes me sad is today’s football fans who use the game of football as a way of creating hatred amongst themselves and if you read in the media last time there were many incidents reported like I can remember the guy who hung himself because his favorite time lost. This is really football madness.

My message to everyone who like the game, let us not abuse the sport this is a game to bring unity and understanding from all people of different races and creed. Ask yourself what you are doing to support the local development of the sport if you are really a great fan. There is potential in our youth in Kenya, Zanzibar and all over Africa but where do we go wrong? You have the answers PLEASE DO SOMETHING THE CHANGE STARTS WITH YOU.

The more you are like yourself the less you are like anyone else. You are like a tree you must put forth the fruits that’s created in you. back to our roots...

Today's photo me I dedicate this page to the students here in Zanzibits who are really an inspiration to me, they keep me going on and on. My swahili has really improved and I like learning new things and my students too like exploring new stuff day by day. Guys keep the spirit and keep on learning practically and you will never be the same again. Don't be a afraid to fail, it's part of stepping stones to success. No one was born knowing, but we have dedicated time, money, experience, team work, education, passion, talent, networking etc to be where we are now. The mind boggling question is how do you get a working experience and yet you are below twenties? here is the answer, through the simple things we do for our communities, schools, churches,families, volunteerism etc write it in your curriculum vitae and that's how you build up your ten years experience. So if you like computers start now, no one is a pro in this game...

Something guys you need to know creative starts as soon as you are born what you need to do is to search it, nature it, explore it and keep on learning from your surrounding…..
