Re: [holistichelping] Thank you for your ideas for our proposal
- Dear Andreas,
I would want first to thank you and Janet for the kind of leadership, support you have been offering to members in this forum. My name is George Onyango. I work with Slums Information Development & Resource Centres (SIDAREC), as a Project Administrator. SIDAREC is a youth found organization ,managed by young people in the slums of Nairobi-Kenya. We work to support young people individually or as a group. We have a concept called "Banana" where we try to reach as many young people when they form themselves into groupings. The support can be in terms of income generating activities , to training them in various aspects.
Since we work with so many young people, some of whom we have not been able to support due to lack of funding to support good initiatives undertaken by young people, I am requesting if I can send you a proposal of one group that is really doing a good work in a small way through Merry-go-round. These are some of the groups that learned from SIDAREC youth, and would want to be what we as young people working with SIDAREC are.
They would like to strengthen there Merry-go-round scheme to reach many youth within the slums. African Innovation Challenge Fund can help these young people to reclaim their self-worth and this is the reason why I am requesting funds on their behalf.
Attached, find AFRO Youth Group Proposal to be part of other proposals you will send to the African Innovation Challenge Fund. Any support you will give to these young people will be highly appreciated.
