Overview of Research interests
My research interests have mainly covered the area of social issues that touch young people and the role that religion plays in providing support to young people in Empowerment. My first research was the Ph.D thesis research that touched on the problem of refugees and the response of the church. From that I have focused on other vulnerable groups, children and young people. One of my big achievements in research with the refugees was to see the establishment of a theological school in the camp that trains pastors and other workers to respond to the spiritual needs of the refugees. The other research among children in Uasin Gishu saw the establishment of Uasin Gishu Children Services Forum an organization that bring together over 40 organizations that work with vulnerable children in Uasin Gishu County. Before the research these organizations existed solely none knowing the existence of the other. Now they meet monthly to discuss their issues, bench mark and brainstorm as they seek to offer quality services to children in Uasin Gishu. My other research with young people has made us aware of the many organizations that help young people to transition to adulthood but they do not have a common curriculum. So with my group we are planning a trainer of trainers for all these organizations that give these services to young people so that they can help to transmit common values and we will have a better country. We hope to start in Uasin Gishu then move to other 47 counties.
