Membership recruitment      

The aftermath of the education campaign has strongly shown a great impact to the people of Korogocho, who have joined the organization in big numbers. Organizing has been overwhelming, in the area now that we are receiving members from all the eight villages who are freely willing to join the group. However we strongly feel that we need a supportive team of organizers to enable us reach out to these village groups in an easier way. We are not sure of how to go about it but we have key persons from each of our working villages of Kisumu dogo and Highridge who now understands the Acorn model of organizing. Actually for them, they would require just some in-depth skills and dynamics in organizing and all will be fine with them.

Thirty eight new members joined the Organization from different villages in the month of October.

Most of the schools in the area have been closely liaising with our office on important information regarding education status in the area. This is as result of the big campaign that we carried out in the area. In terms of the tangible outcome of the campaign we have also been getting a lot of positive feed backs from different personalities, encouraging us and our work in the area. Again from the recommendations brought out during the campaign day we strongly hope that come next year we will be able to get few bright pupils’ from the very poor families sponsored in their secondary education in the area.
