Celebrating Kenya’s Independence day, or Jamhuri day, Unicaf offered around 30 students the chance to visit the magnificent Lake Nakuru National Park, one of Kenya’s finest nature reserves. The students and Unicaf staff escorting them set off very early in the morning from Nairobi and arrived at Nakuru just before midday. After a rich buffet lunch at the Golden palace hotel, during which they had the chance to mingle and network with fellow students, they were taken on a safari drive in the beautiful landscape of the park, best explored in the golden light of the afternoon sun. From special vantage points the Unicaf group enjoyed exquisite views of the blue waters of the lake dotted with pink flamingoes, pelicans, cormorants, kingfishers, ostriches and storks and of the park’s dense acacia woodlands, home to herds of impala, waterbuck and large pythons hanging from trees, as well as other endangered wildlife species, including the largest population of the black rhinos.
The school curriculum and getting good grades has been effective in career building and getting a good job. However, due to economic development, good grades are not enough. You may do well but miss out on a job. This is because you may lack some skills the employer is keen on. Such skills are relevant to employment in the 21st century and the technology-based era. Students and graduates should do their best to learn these skills. They will give you a competitive edge in the modern economy. Here is a list of four of such skills.
Africa is going digital, and this is happening rapidly unlike ever before. Access to digital communication technologies is now an intricate part of the lives of many people in Africa, most especially the middle class. Nigeria for instance, Africa’s most populous country, and most populous black nation in the World, already enjoys 47.1% internet penetration. Smartphone usage, including mobile internet data access, are increasing in demand. A roughly 25m – 40m people in Nigeria use a smartphone. This according to Statista, and the figure is expected to increase significantly by 2025.

Economic growth in the last decades in many developing countries has managed to somewhat increase prosperity of small segments of the population. But the continuing increase in births, plus the lack of the necessary infrastructure and available public funds renders the public services in developing countries seriously unable to fulfill their purpose. This is particularly obvious in the sector of education. When governments cannot provide adequate university places to satisfy the educational needs of the new generations, sustainable development is simply not possible.
The visit to the Kalimba Reptile Park, near Lusaka, was an exciting day trip for 45 UNICAF students in Zambia in November. The event, organised by UNICAF, was a huge success, with the students enjoying games of scrabble, volleyball and pool and then taking a guided tour of the park. Conquering their fear of snakes, some students dared to hold a trained python; they also learned interesting facts about Africa’s reptiles, and saw some of the most dangerous species living in the Park. The Park rangers explained to the group what to do if a crocodile attacks, as well as which types of snakes are poisonous and can paralyse or kill humans with their poison. Zambia’s oldest crocodile, 65 year old ‘Mr Chongwe’, was also visited by the students. The rangers explained the medicinal value and uses of the different kinds of indigenous trees growing in the park.
