Dear Ken/ IIdiko,

Thanks for your support (enquiries; offering important links; etc). Sorry that neither Timothy nor I, had a chance to view the Chat Invitation. However, we have mobilized and have had Three Plenary Meetings with the first 20 youth to be trained in handicraft (10) and Motor Vehicle Mechanics (10). These are Vocational Enterprises. Most of these youth have been involved in criminal activities with some orf them being former convicts.

We have drawn the initial Project Budgetary Requirement Analysis segmented into phases for easy funding managibility. We will post this shortly.

Peace and All Good,

John Mark. :-)

Hullo IIdiko!
I`m glad to read that you are interestted in joining us in Kajulu. I wrote a short welcome message way back to you with joy since you were the first neighbour in KAjulu after the launch of the new website.Hope you enjoyed your stay in Kisumu. The project is about providing vocational skills training to youth in the area. For a atart, they are to be trained in Motorvehicle mechanics and handicraft. As it already is, work has been done on the ground to secure locations for that and the first batch of youth has been identified. Work within the community itself has been done and we now need materials/ resources that can enable the project to proceed. You can help us by searching for organizations that can fund so as to succeed in this youth led initiative.Your help in passing on information that we can use will also be helpfull. All it takes will be your valuable time and we, together can turn a situation around. We can give these boys and girls a future with the little we can afford to do.

Please, for anymore information, I willl be glad to give more details.

Thanks very much
Tim

Hullo neighbors!

Lets share ideas and information so as to help out the youth of Kajulu and the communinity as a whole.

Thanks,

Tim

Hullo everyone!
The village has been quiet of late as you all can realize. Can we try to get together and share ideas so as to get results here?

For a start, we need resources form donor organizations. Mary in Italy sent a very good contact that I posted.The organization is called Tools For Solidarity in Ireland. I have provided some information in the attached document.

Lets start by devising means of soliciting for resources from donors that we need for the success of this project.

You can help us here by identifying more of them that we can partner with.

I look forward to sharing with you all.

Thanks,

Tim Walsh
