Thus, language and media are key factors in realization of millennium development goals that comprise of total universal education, gender equity, end of poverty and hunger for all, optimum child health, control and combat of HIV/AIDS, realization of environmental sustainability and achievement of global partnership.

Equitable and sustainable funding in social sciences and humanities, in language development, technological improvement and media freedom is necessary to shape the society positively in terms of cultural aspects, norms and believes. A well informed society is critical in strategizing for realization of millennium development goals in Kenya.
