      Dear Janet, Andrius, Ken, Bernadette and all,
      Thanks for all the members in the list for the communication , we both feel very happy to inform you all that we were successfull in reaching Kisumu and met the team there together. We were able to meet Benta Bwana, Charles Aboge, Bernadette Otieno and there was an inspiring talk between us.
      Maria Agnese is compiling the report and will send it to all in the forum following this in few days, she has more reports to send through, we wish you all the best time and Maria Agnese is living on 16th Aug to Dar es salaam for ten days then back to italy.
      She cannot open her email and so you can share with us what you have.
      Best regards,
      Maria Agnese and Samwel.

      Dear Maria, Sam, and All,

      Excellent to read that you are in Kenya, that Sam has his laptop, and these
      marvelous notes from Maria abt your trip, and Nafsi!! My other "hat" is as
      founder/director of ActALIVE (www.actalive. org), an arts coalition whose
      members use the arts and media to address HIV/AIDS and development issues.
      So the work of Nafsi is right up my artistic alley, so to speak, and I do
      know Dagoretti and some of the groups working there. How wonderful that
      they want to do outreach, travel, and about all of their uplifting
      activities for/with youth!

      Another working there is AMREF, and they have used arts and similar
      activities to help youth affected by HIV/AIDS in Dagoretti. Specifically
      performance, and one called "Black Pinocchio", which the youth performed in
      Kenya and then in Italy!! Here is the url for more on this, and it sounds
      like there are some close connections between Italy and Dagoretti, which I
      hope we can utilize.

      I have sent a separate note to all Kenyans interested in meeting in Kisumu,
      and am sure you will have a terrific time there too. Will be eager for
      updates when you can give them, and greatest thanks to you for
      everything!! !! Blessings always, Janet

      Dear all,
      i want to thank everybody of the list , at first Andrius and Janet for
      their help and assistance in my travel. I'm in Rusinga Island with Sawuel
      and I'm so positively impressed by the beauty of the place and the by the
      people I met since my arrival on the 10th...at first by Samwel!
      In Nairobi I met a group of yougs "Nafsi Africa Acrobats" who perform as
      acrobats. They teach acrobatics to street children in Nairobi slums. I
      could meet some children and assist at a lesson. I'll remember it

      I'll send you soon information of the group of acrobats. They'll come soon
      to Italy and are intersted in contacting associations or group to arrange
      other performance in Europe.Contact: Ken Owino
      nafsiafricaacro@ yahoo.com

      I'll send you soon also reports of meetings with a group of women, with the
      Responsible of CCF in Ruginsa and the group of Youngs. Yesterday I met
      Kennedy Onyango and we are talking about how to improve our ICT skills
      and about printing on demand. Tomorrow we'll meet again and we'll send a
      report next days.

      On monday 14th we'll go to Kisumu to meet other people. I'm sorry for
      misunderstandigs. I'm very happy to meet them and I'apologize for poor
      communication with people interested in the project of "printing in
      demand". I hope we keep in touch.
