By 2025, 1.85 billion people in the world will be living in water scarcity. Countries will be going to war for water. But some people don't have to wait until 2025 to experience this reality of water scarcity; lack of water is a reality that Beth Koigi knows all too well.

Kenya is on high alert after 3 ebola cases were confirmed in neighbouring Uganda. This is feared to be a sign that ebola is spreading from DRC to neighbouring countries. Of the 3 confirmed cases, 2 of the patients died and one was repatriated, at their request, to DRC, so Uganda no longer has any confimed ebola cases. However, this doesn't mean that we shouldn't be concerned. Ebola is very much a public health issue, and key to beating the outbreak is creating awareness. So here's what you need to know about ebola.
Pride Series was created to highlight the stories of Kenyan LGBTQ+ persons. For part two, we have E.O., an openly-gay young Kenyan lesbian.

Climate change refers to a change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns that lasts for an extended period of at least 30 years. The changing of climate throughout the years is normal, however, what is of concern is the man-made climate change which is caused by an increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and other human activities.
