FOR NEW FRIENDS: This is my story

FOR NEW FRIENDS: This is my story, and how I came to have this page. You can ask me questions below.

I have lived in the camp at Dadaab (run by the ‪#‎UNHCR‬ / ‪#‎UN‬ High Commission for ‪#‎Refugees‬) for 23 years, since I was 11. I got married here, and my three children (aged 12, 8 and 4) were all born here. Our greatest wish is to go back home to ‪#‎Somalia‬, but unfortunately this is not possible because of the ongoing conflict there. I hope and pray that I can find a way out of the camp to live in a country with more opportunities for my family.

The potential potency of a wiki as a tool for Change and Activism

Potency & Latency

A wiki actively supported by a small/medium community could become a very potent tool for activism.

po·tent adjective \ˈpō-tənt\
1 : having or wielding force, authority, or influence : powerful
2 : achieving or bringing about a particular result : effective

This powerful tool is however not used to its full potential, if at all.

po·ten·tial noun \pə-ˈten(t)-shəl\
1 : a chance or possibility that something will happen or exist in the future.

this is not a punition

I was thinking about the term "heavy" and it seems to me that is not the right word.

This should be not a punition but a recognition. In fact the geste to pay will be a noble action clearly acclamed every year.

During an annual event the Cesar of who contribute to make the system noble will receive an internation recognition and not only from the rich but, and the most important, from the poor.

...
"Should the rich recompensed as they are making the system performant thanks noble and gorgeaous taxes"

My choice is your happiness

In spite of the hardships in Dadaab refugee life, am usually motivated by my friends in oversea.
I feel strong and want to make change in my world but i can't be there how much i want to help others who need me.
No one is any one without every one and many thanks to every one who one day helped one who needed help.
Remember #Dadaab is waiting for you.
Kind regards.

#BringBackOurGirls - A Case for Online Advocacy

For many years, I worked in the Research Department of Alder Consulting, a leading creative intelligence firm in Nigeria, before I left to head the Consulting unit. While in Research, I learnt a valuable lesson – It’s not enough to collate or analyse data; true value lies in understanding what it means and using it to drive critical decision making.

Possible motivation behind Boko Haram’s abduction of 276 schoolgirls in Chibok, Nigeria

''On 2 May 2014, President Goodluck Jonathan set up a committee to find out the mystery surrounding the kidnapping of 276 schoolgirls in Chibok, Nigeria. The Federal Government expressed frustration over the inconsistencies in the information available on the abduction of the girls of Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State who were kidnapped on 15 April 2014.

Staying Motivated While Exhausted: Resources on Dealing with Stresses of Advocacy

This is difficult work-no one sane is debating or questing that. Despite acknowledging this, we are often very hard on ourselves for a perceived inability to motivate the masses, to fully mobilize any 1 of the 7 billion people in this world. Step back and look at that number again: 7,000,000,000 people in this world may or may not have the potential to engage this drastically important cause. How any of these individuals comes to know of the cause isn't the issue here, that always remains squarely on the Girls Being Returned Home.
