UNDP Youth Sounding Board Mr.Ngatia Muhoya with other Stakeholders Millennials Speak , today launched the Badilico Digital Platform in partnership with Hanna Seidel Foundation at Villa Rosa Kempiski.
Majority of youth distrust political systems aren’t in touch with most of their leaders where we are changing that . We have created a first of a kind mixed reality digital platforms known as Badilico . It is a gamification of fantasy politics.
The platform aims to be the premier platform that unites youths and leaders in Kenya as it creates opportunity to learn more a bout the design and development of Badilico Game and engage you on what best strategies we could explore to ensure we achieve our overall goal / objectives to proactively engage youth in the political decision -making process .
Mr.Ngatia emphasized that we hold the demographic advantage as the leaders of today , we must ask, for, I peg your pardon , take power as youth. But how do we do this ?is the question, do we riot on streets ? do post it on social media ? should we even organises ourselves ?
We have a better idea , an idea that will reach all four corner of Kenya , one that will liberate the youth , give them hope and allow them to believe in the beauty of their dreams once more . “We cannot build the future for the youth , but the youth for the future “
We believe in the change that is coming, the change that is already here , we are beginning slowly but surely to take our place in the government and private sector as the youth . This new administration, led by His Excellency Dr.Ruto , has the enormous challenge or opportunity , to harness the demographic dividend of youth , where we are looking to offer our assistance.
Eliud Kipchoge said , no human is limited .
Lupita Nyong said – your dreams are valid .
People who ask you – who are often to demean you , make you feel small .But I’m here to say why not me ? I ask you to believe in yourself because once we know who we are become unstoppable. It is our hope that this innovation will help and give our youth identity .
