Know about this from Samwel
- Hi all,I am in kisumu traveling back to Nairobi and will have a chat with Maria, Josphat, and William on Wednesday at 4pm EAT while in Nairobi. The next day Thursday I will chat with Ricardo at 11am EAT on Uyoga, on Mbita and personal issues regarding our growth and compatibility. I hope all is done and understood.In the list people know the different projects undertaken and i feel more questions on presentations of community projects can only be for the new members in the forum not those with known endeavors. Putting a side the already existing thoughts and ideas tells us/me the way our content is being misused in general mails and meaning.I am not going to be misunderstood and the good work from the community must be understood and taken into consideration. If we are directing people, we are to be sure where they are going to work and with whom. We Know what Tom Ochuka is doing, Ken Owino, Dan Otedo, Ken Chelimo, David Mutua, Denis Kimambo, Fred Kayiwa, Rachel Wambugu and me etc, asking for community projects all the times; is like assuming the knowledge and our already known to all in the forum. We should not take ideas for others own gains????? nobody cannot do several projects of which most is done online without reality, while the problem still exist within the grass root set up. If you are always glued on the computers online, when do you people come out to reality??. I believe and sure that being some of these info online needs some screening! and if not so? I will not entertain online agreements. In our new Consortium which was launched in Mbita on 1st July 2008, we are going to put into category the plans and themes to be addressed not general emails endlessly!!! our focus is and still ICT & ENTREPRENEURSHIP development FOR THE LOCALS and hope to focus, Sustainable Tourism and Agriculture for the locals from July 2009. I am not going to be out swayed again on more endless social generals interactions which does not address the real problem on the ground to the communities..Have a focused thinking and stick to develop it!!!Samwel

She has stoped working as a house maid and looking for any suport she could get to keep her two children and later on continue with her studies.
For the time being,we welcomed her to our house while we still sharing with other people.The problems of these ladies are very common everywhere,and their cases sre not so unique or strange to us.They have failed unknowningly share local oppotunities due to lack of exposure and the narrow right given to them at Micro financial institutions.
Let us share with the rest of the world to encourage the "Sacrifice for Motivation"
