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

Subject: Re: [holistichelping] We are already In Rusinga
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
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.
