6 Challenges

HESABIKA is called to serve God and Kenya at a time when the nation is experiencing the following ills:

Failure of Leadership

We see a vacuum of good leadership in many sectors of the society especially in political governance. However, the self-serving and self-seeking leadership extends to professions, communities and churches as well.

Breakdown of morals and values

We are part of a society that loves and worships money, distorts the truth, and fails in the integrity test in every level of society. The family is under threat with new definitions of identity, disregard for the sanctity of life and human dignity, as well as focus on rights without responsibility.

Poverty and inequality

Kenya is one of the most unequal societies anywhere and rapidly becoming a nation of a few billionaires and millions of beggars. The poor are disregarded and exploited; the unemployment rate particularly for the youth disturbing. Heavy government borrowing condemns future generations to penury even before they are born.

Corruption

We feature highly in global corruption leagues and we seem to have accepted our lot. Government offices and increasingly even private companies expect bribes as a right. There is a rise in tolerance of petty corruption as a way of life. Corruption and negative ethnicity are related as ‘tribes-men and women’ fight for their ‘turn to eat’

Social fragmentation

Politics in Kenya takes advantage of our ethnic and regional differences to fan hatred for selfish reasons. The inequality in access to education and other national resources has led to a class system with the majority in the underclass. Social mobility is only a dream for the majority of Kenyans.

Injustice

Though we have come a long way, it is still a valid mantra that there is no need to bribe a lawyer if you can buy a judge. Majority of Kenyans suffer from the poor access and delivery of justice in a system stacked in favour of the strong and wealthy.

BE AN AGENT OF TRANSFORMATION FOR OUR NATION

As long as poverty, corruption, failure of leadership, injustice & inequality persist, none of us can truly rest. Get in touch today and start making the difference.
