Dr. Phinehas Kinuthia

The launch of the Human Rights Global Congress by IChange Nations™ in Grand Rapids Michigan was a life changing event. It was exciting and inspiring to have people from all walks of life come together and begin the conversation on how to educate the world on their Human Rights. It was inspiring to hear from each great leader.

The underlying theme was how valuable each of us are in our uniqueness and why we are to contribute towards humanity’s development by educating our children.  What inspired me was the paradigm that human rights issue is all about potential. There is untapped potential in everyone and so when we violate the human rights of others such as their rights for equality and freedom we deny them the opportunity to maximize on their abilities and who they were meant to be. This in return becomes potential wasted and humanity misses out on the value of that person’s contribution to the world. So every person should be valued.

It was also clear that the education of people on Human Rights has to start with our children. The average person cannot quote all the 30 Human Rights in the Universal Declaration of the Human Rights.  So we are to start helping people learn and understand their rights so they can become proponents and advocates of causes that support these rights.  It was an honor to contribute to this great conversation.

Chris and Carol Green w/ Shalom House Women's Shelter Staff 

Urban Community Ambassadors and Life Coaches, Chris and Carol Green were part of a special gathering of community partners and volunteers who were acknowledged at a Recognition Reception hosted by the Shalom House Women’s Shelter on June 14, 2016.

“When I first met Chris and Carol and learned of the work that they do, I knew they could have a significant positive impact on the lives of the residents we serve at Shalom House," says Executive Director of the shelter, Denise Britton.

“Without hesitation, they jumped in to begin engaging the residents and furthering the potential of turning an experience of homelessness and often hopelessness into hope and possibility. Further, they committed to helping us raise the bar of effectiveness for our staff, offering their coaching expertise (and encouragement) in regular staff training sessions. Our gratitude is unending.”

The World Peace Ambassadors were merged into the Shelter's calendar to provide life coaching support for both the staff and residents of this special outreach situated in one of the City of Harrisburg’s high-crime neighborhoods.

“We’re just following the Golden Rule mandate that tells us that we must treat others the way we want to be treated,” says Carol Green who leads the monthly staff coaching sessions.

“The location of an urban community outreach should never deter you from the mission to lift all of humanity. The women and children that come to the shelter have been through incredible trauma. The Shalom House staff is to be commended for the outstanding work they do in guiding the residents to a place where they are ready to receive life coaching from us.”

Chris and Carol Green became part of the Shelter’s strategy to transition the residents out the facility and back into everyday life. Their coaching tools proved to be vital in enhancing the resident’s life coping skills; enabling them to take confident steps toward rebuilding their families and recapturing their lives.

World Peace Ambassador, Dr. Clyde Rivers calls Chris and Carol Green the leading skilled experts in rebuilding, restoring and renewing hearts and homes. The Green are certified master life coaches who founded the Fruitful Life Network, Inc. an innovative community care and coaching outreach. They are international columnist/writers with the award winning team of Dr. Clyde Rivers and iChange Nations Social Media News™.

This articles tells us about some of the focus of Hope 631. Dr. Grace is also involved in the leadership of IChange Nations™ First Lady’s Club.

Hope 631 a Global nonprofit starts a new initiative of building primary schools at the dumpsite in Nakuru Kenya. The African slums have been neglected for many years. The poor are abandoned and left to fate and the dumpsite has become a home for many. Though a violation of human rights, local governments have done little to nothing in helping these families change their way of life. 

Africa region has experienced an impressive increase in the number of students enrolled in primary school. Between 1990 and 2012, the number of children enrolled in primary schools more than doubled, from 62 million to 149 million children. In sub-Saharan Africa, 15 countries have abolished school fees since 2000, enabling more children to attend primary school. Despite tremendous gains in primary school enrollment, no African country has achieved universal primary education. For a country to achieve universal primary education, all children must have completed a full course of primary schooling. Globally, 58 million children of primary school age were out of school in 2012. Of that number, 38 million children were in Africa. About half of all out-of-school African children will never step foot in a school in their lifetime. Source: UNESCO, United Nations.


At the dumpsite in Nakuru, very few children attend primary school because they can’t afford to pay for tuition and uniforms and in many cases the schools are so far away and it’s not safe for them as there have been a number of reported rape cases. School environment and learning conditions are unbearable Seeing the need for these disenfranchised families, Hope 631 has stepped up to help by providing clean water, food, the basic necessities of life and most important building primary schools. Starting with the most immediate need which is also the most basic: clean water, Hope 631, has started working on building wells so these families can also have access to clean water.

In a recent interview, Vice president Dr. Charles Kinuthia stated that the current education system provides neither the financial literacy students will need to manage the meager resources under their control, nor the guidance needed to create opportunities for securing a livelihood or building wealth. In addition, schooling provides little assistance to promote the physical health needed for economic stability and quality of life. Life expectancy is low in impoverished regions, and not just because of lack of quality medical care. The devastation of preventable disease wreaks havoc on the well-being and financial stability in poor regions; which can be dramatically mitigated through instruction on basic health behaviors, such as hand washing.

Primary education lays the foundation for the success or failure of future learning. Hope 631 President, Dr. Grace Kinuthia, in collaboration with IChange Nation™ President Dr. Clyde Rivers hope to change the current trend which is epidemic and are calling on other world leaders to support the new education initiatives around the world that will make the world a better place.
