Home / Day: September 6, 2011
Better part of the months was spent on identifying organizations and institutions that would be stake holders in the Korogocho education day which is scheduled to take place on 6th October 2011.That day has been marked to climax series of events and activities on education campaign. We still look forward to be with the Director of city education, District Education officer and the Municipal Education officer, the area Chief as part of the guests to grace the day.
However other activities on membership recruitment, leadership building and dues collection has been going on concurrently.
Forty new members joined the organization in the last one month, – a good number having been recruited from the other villages of Korogocho.
EDUCATION COMMITTEE MEETINGS
This is a special task force composed of leaders drawn from the village and other stake holders working on education issues. We meet on every Mondays at 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm
Briefs on the education campaign
We meet with Father John of korogocho and agreed to give us the venue. Hence it is now confirmed that this event will take place at St. Johns Compound and we feel that this is a great step towards our organizing for this day. There is a very good arena and security here is tight for all those who will attend the event unlike in the open ground at the Chiefs camp.
So far all the invitation letters of the organizations working in Korogocho, and other from outside but working in areas of Education have been given dispersed, and starting next week we will start doing the follow-up with the with them to know their position in regards to this great event. Others also who have been given the letters includes the Banks, Institutions of education, and companies like Safaricom Kenya. Orange Kenya, Airtel Kenya, Brookside dairies just to mention a few.
We are also compiling the contact list of all old students from Korogocho- people who have become successful in their lives from the area, and can be role model to the community. We believe they have a greater role they can play in bringing Change to the education status in Korogocho.
