Welcome to Counselling Research Institute of Kenya



As an educationists, researcher and psychologist, I feel energized, revived and inspired as I write down this commentary. As I was reading the bible ushering in the new year I come across some words of Jesus when He said " the stone the builders rejected finally become the cornerstone of the building" For years our country has been suffering for rejecting LEADERSHIP and instead promoting BOSSINESS. .

Let me start by appreciating Dr Matiangi our cabinet Secretary for Education. When releasing KCSE results he refused to blame the teachers for the poor results and instead said all stakeholders in education sector must be evaluated to unearth the roots of problems ailing education sector. Teachers are the core or engine of education sector but can not achieve much in a system that is messy.


Join In Our National Wide Campaign to Save the Boy Child

About one month ago I shared in our face book page an article on boy child which is still accessible on the website I want to appreciate the great men and women who read and shared the message widely. The response is positive and something good is happening.

However, many questions about the boy - child are still being raised. In response to the issues raised am now elaborating further on the boy child crisis in Kenya. My arguments are based on empirical studies conducted by researchers Like Kamore, Tiego and Kiriungi 2015, National Gender and Equity Commission 2015, Joseph and Mbatia, 2015 and Chang'ach, 2012 among others.


Boy - Child Mentorship Initiative

Am writing this with great empathy for our sons. Men spend much of their time and efforts making wealth without creating time for their sons who are expected to replace them as future fathers, husbands, leaders and professionals in various fields.

Women, media and international donors have invested heavily on girl. - child empowerment with great success. Gradually the Boy - child has been neglected and left to navigate life like sheep without shepherd. Many boys are sinking in identity confusion by adapting feminine behaviours. They get frustrated due low self - esteem. The rate of boy cold school drop out increasing. Recent data on school enrollment show that in some counties there more girls than boys completing in primary and secondary education.


Advocacy to Address the Boy Child Crisis in Kenya

Recent headlines in our media have asserted that there is a problem with boys and young men in our country. There is a silent epidemic "Boys crisis" and a gradually growing new gap between boys and girls. Many adolescent boys are fairly doing well. They graduate from high schools, make healthy choices and reach adulthood prepared for world work but poorly prepared for family responsibilities.

Am concerned at the rate the boy child is being neglected. Our president is a man and father, his deputy too....majority of members of parliament, leaders in government departments and corporate bodies are men. Am not complaining but my worries is that the future of the boy child is bleak unless men in leadership join in this affirmative efforts of supporting the boy child in our country.


Mobile Phones Taking Control of Our Children

Mobile phones if well used can be of great benefit to children especially in enhancing their education and communication with family members. Children especially teenagers use mobile phones to increase their opportunity to bond with friends and organize their social life privately. However, mobile phones seem to have taken control of children life making caretakers worried.
