Mission: to partner with individuals and communities in Western Kenya to support entrepreneurial activities, education and health through training programmes, scholarships, water and sanitation projects
Things are moving fast already. We transferred a chunk of cash because the Kenyan shilling is at its lowest point ever with about 100 shillings to the dollar. When we first came in 2003 it hovered aroung 50. Only worrying thing is that it seems our Bank of Montreal cards no longer work at Barclay's ATM. Will check into it Monday.
We're just about unpacked and sorted and had a meeting today about opening a new bank account, about renovating the rental space we use for training and interviewing a lady for office help.
On Wednesday we plan a trip to Kisumu to complete the paperwork on the new (to us) vehicle and to meet our business trainer for setting up future training sessions with women's groups.
On Thursday I hope to go to Maseno where we have a Rotary community grant that must be completed in the next few months.
