English to Kiswahili translation?
How do you say these words/phrases in Swahili:
‘love’ (the idea – ie NOT I love, NOT he loves, etc.)
‘Unity through education’
‘World Peace through education’
‘Opportunity’

if you know any african phrases (english or swahili) similar to these topics, that would be great as well. please no online dictionary translations.

love = penzi
ni kweli penzi jipya lina nguvu za ajabu= It’s true that new love has amazing strength.
Opportunity= nafasi
Unity through education= Umoja kutipia elimu
World peace through education= Amani ya duniani kutipia elimu.
