Dear Chris and All,
Hello and how fabulous!! Thanks so much for your
other invaluable and excitng mails, and I hope to
reply soon (there is so much to say it's hard at this
time to toss something off...but I'll try, haha!).
This is something which Ken Owino, Felix Masi, and
Fred Ouko of KCYP (www.kcyp.net) will be thrilled
KCYP is a dynamic youth org located in Kibera, which
is doing many edutainment-related activities, and is
in need of physical venues and also cyber-spaces for
greater visibility. I have elsewhere mentioned Felix
Masi (www.voicelesschildren.org), and there is also
SIDAREC (www.sidarec.or.ke), GYCA (chapter in )Kenya
(www.youthaidscoalition.org), and ARYI
NOPE (http://www.nope.or.ke/V2/index.php) is an
association of peer educators. KICOSHEP is a
grassroots development nonprofit with a special focus
on youth (http://www.kicoshep.org). I can link you
with some, and I'm sure Ken-Felix-Fred can link you
Any way that London can help Kenya, including Kibera,
is greatly welcome and deeply appreciated! As is your
own invaluable work and caring! With all best wishes
and blessings, Janet

lasting news: hosting london-kenyan most empowering
new collaboration flows of youth's century
The news that the world's largest slum has open spaced
an entertainment space for empowerment fund raising as
well as carnivalisation for the cost of US$ 200 is
probably the greatest micro entrepreneurial new act of
the year- anyway a lot better economically and
socially than Bono's and BBC Red Nose Curtis' American
Idol coming to shoot film, fundraise $100 mn, and
never give anything back a cent to kibera- which
searches so far prove to be the case
info@... awaits verifiable news that
american idol fund allocators have changed this
Don Nows for kibera empowerment media/mediators :-
RSVP1 Is there a list of kibera projects teamed by
members of "holistic" or other empowerment networkers
please make sure this list is known to me and so my
empowerment network friends all over London and just
do it now in one convergent userfriendly format ,
-where they have an english bookmark that will do
together with a contact point among holistic;
where they dont have a bookmark, why not start one
blog or yahoo/google group that has 2 line project
entries; unlike wikis etc blog and egroups have
individualy referenced bookmarks, something that is
absolutely essential if I am to try and find
colaboraors or co-funders of particular projects- in
otherw ords www.kiva.org is not a wiki mash up and nor
should you be in cataloguing stories/projects that
need funding so that empowerment teams get resources
RSVP2 can someone update me? is there still a local
problem uploading stuff to youtube; if there isnt a
problem can we see a first utube? We are in a
desperate rush in London as the main 1000 people
collaboration/empowerment network event of the year is
less than 24 days away. without stuff I can link to
all you work will not get a look in amongst thsi
year's deepest collaboration city event
