Am extremely delighted at the work you are undertaking in trying to fight for the minority worldwide. My major concern is about my tribe in Kenya known as Abasuba. It is under threat from their dominant neighbour, Luo.Only the older generation speaks it. UNESCO report of 2002 described it as an endangered language. As the young generation we have formed a local NGO in Kenya so as to rejuvenate it. Is it possible to rejuvenate a language which is on the brinks of extinction? and if yes, how and through which methods?
