A PROGRESSIVE REPORT FOR THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER, 2014

29TH NEVEMBER, 2014 

Introduction

The month of November was vibrant with a number of activities on the ground being membership recruitment drive, planning committee meetings and membership meetings.

As a country, we faced a major challenge of insecurity as the Al- Shabab militia massacred 28 people in Mandera North Eastern part of the country.

In Korogocho and the neighboring estates same issue of insecurity was witnessed in form of mugging and other petty crimes. These cases normally increase as we approach the festive seasons of December every year.

Campaigns.

The organizing committee is planning for big celebration for people living with HIV/AIDs on 9 December 2014. We are targeting 1,000 people from Korogocho and the neighboring estates to attend. It will be a two-day event. On 8 December we will have Testing and Counseling for HIV/AIDs which will culminate into a celebration on the following day. Faulu Kenya Bank one of our stakeholders has agreed to partially sponsor the event.

The celebration for children as part of campaigns to push for guiding policies on use of drugs and child neglect has been scheduled for 19 December 2014. We are yet to confirm any organization interested in sponsor this event but it that crucial that we have to do it to reduce the issues of drug trafficking and child abuse in the area.
