Kabubi Herman aka SlimEmCee the poet is one of the young people I have seen blossom into great leaders of influence among their peers and the poetry world.

I like that he sets examples for others and encourages young people to advocate for better living in their communities. Below is something he wrote about his work in the community he visited recently .

A lot of people mind very much about their work depending on their profession and one could say they target to become wealthy. But this wealth is not to be enjoyed by the entire community, just the individual with his or her family.

It’s high time we think of what we do on a daily basis, how it helps us and those around us and how it contributions to the society.

It is so sad to know how some people are so arrogant. Imagine someone driving from home only to meet his or her neighbours cleaning the community or even digging the road where their car will pass and all they can do is to continue on their journey instead of adding on to the human capital.

I ‘overstand’ we all have various responsibilities but once in a while, it would be great to spare a few hours and do something within and for our communities.

Why should we wait for village leaders/elders to first call for meeting so that we can be reminded of our responsibilities?
Why should we wait for multinational companies like MTN to organize a marathon so we can know that there are causes?
Why should we wait for Kampala City Yange, to know that it’s important to keep our city clean?

In the photo, I was in Bukerere, Mukono District Uganda, East African continent where I was making a ramp for one of my clients who used a wheel chair. The idea was to utilize the locally available resources but at the same time, teach the client’s family the entire process of setting up the ramp such that they can easily fix or replace it than wait for aid workers to rescue them. I also played my role in cleaning a home where a family lived under the same roof with ducks, goats and had pigs just behind the house.

You can do whatever you want to do, you can make as much money as you desire but do not forget that your community needs you too.
