      Welcome to all from Amsterdam! I just flew in from Chicago. I share my chat
      today with Samwel Kongere in Kenya who leads our Mendenyo (Men without food)
      working group. Andrius

      Samwel's trip to Europe

      samkongere2004: ok Andrius, and I am thankful, I see great work and how do
      you figure this trip to Europe next year?

      minciusodas: I think that you are a good organizer

      minciusodas: and also it'

      minciusodas: is important that you spend some time in Europe to understand
      the situation here

      samkongere2004: We are meeting with Maria Here in May and we will make the

      minciusodas: and perhaps how people in Africa can be helpful here

      samkongere2004: ok

      minciusodas: So for us it is most important that you be investigating your
      question about the comfortable life while helping others - we should make a
      plan for that

      minciusodas: and study that in Africa and in Europe too

      minciusodas: so that you become expert on this question.

      samkongere2004: I also wanted to train on Some ICT related issues and even
      project management

      minciusodas: That will make you very knowledgeable in reality here and

      minciusodas: Yes

      minciusodas: but if you are working on an investigation that is important to

      samkongere2004: great

      minciusodas: then your training will be much more focused and connected and

      samkongere2004: i Think

      minciusodas: Second, it is important that you think of yourself as a
      representative for all of our Africans

      minciusodas: and our people in other developing countries too

      minciusodas: and you should feel comfortable and knowledgeable as a

      minciusodas: and make connections for everybody

      minciusodas: not just yourself.

      samkongere2004: That is why I am concerned about Cameroon, Uganda and

      minciusodas: So that when you are in Europe you can help everybody.

      minciusodas: Yes, very good.

      samkongere2004: Great I always love you inputs, we only become great when we
      are helping

      minciusodas: yes and your example is fantastic and inspiring

      minciusodas: and we learn a lot from what you show is possible

      samkongere2004: helping others get information and wealth

      samkongere2004: I think your business idea for the lab is also fantastic

      minciusodas: yes so it will be important that you understand our business
      partners in Europe and what kind of work can be done in Africa

      samkongere2004: I thank you also for connecting me with Maria A great lady.
      She is paying my internet

      samkongere2004: Yes, this can help me go in search of businesses for our lab
      here great!

      samkongere2004: I am not troubled now this is why i am doing great

      samkongere2004: This will be our oreintation plan for a cohesive Africa and
      East Africa, when they use me as their link.

      minciusodas: yes, we'll need to think and write about your income to make
      sure that you can get by for the coming year

      minciusodas: and I expect our bonuses soon, thank you for your excellent

      samkongere2004: great

      minciusodas: and I ask for your thought and advice through our groups where
      we should make best use of our money

      minciusodas: so that we include everybody in some small way

      samkongere2004: ok

      minciusodas: not just in Africa but in India and other countries, too

      minciusodas: we will think and plan

      samkongere2004: Yes this is going to open scope

      samkongere2004: I hope you will be taking the lead while I do the plan for
      what to do for Africa while there

      minciusodas: yes we'll get to know each other better! I look forward to

      minciusodas: also, Agnese is interested in e-learning so we should think
      about her interests how to support them

      samkongere2004: Yes we are going with her in the same direction

      samkongere2004: It will be a great opportuinty to meet you, you are inspiring

      minciusodas: Her deepest value is "Growing as Human Beings" and her
      investigatory question is: How can people stuck in the Western work system
      apply themselves creatively for the education of youth?

      minciusodas: So we should encourage her to work on that!

      minciusodas: Thank you!

      minciusodas: Anything else?

      minciusodas: I will share our chat

      samkongere2004: Just go on and do the arrangements our imigration office will
      need some documents to support my travels and I will let you this when I visit
      Nairobi in May.

      samkongere2004: They will also require your invitation letter and a support
      letter to make my travel recomendations.

      minciusodas: Samwel, please inquire about all the documents. Please check if
      your visa for Italy will be good for other countries, too. Or do you need a
      visa for each country separately? Also, please check for Lithuania. Say
