VIVIAMO! PARTICIPANTS TAKE A GROUP PHOTO AFTER A JOB WELL DONE

ASANTE,THANK YOU, DANKE,GRACIAS,MERCI TO ALL VIVIAMO! PARTICIPANTS(21-06-08)

Words cannot explain the thoughts and feelings I had as I saw Viviamo! Africa come to be on 21st June. Since late Last year, Noreen and I had worked at creating initial plans for the project. I was very disillusioned by the Post Election violence in Kenya which made our plans and visions dim out.

But here we were, members and friends of WYA all committed to playing a role in making our world better through Viviamo!

I have no words but to express my gratitude to Mr. Kamau, the Executive Director of Ahadi Kenya Trust for entrusting the young people in WYA to work with Ahadi Kenya in the noble work of jigger eradication and sanitation, former Miss Kenya Beauty queen Cecilia Mwangi, for her good work in the Anti-jigger campaign and all those who joined us for the event.

My biggest Thumbs up to all WYA members for your generous contributions and participation at Viviamo! and other WYA activities. Your gift of self to others is always an inspiration to all of us. Thank you to Amira and Jennifer, the WYAA interns who helped in logistics for the day(and for your smiles too!).
A big Thank you to Dennis Machio, WYA member currently training at The Mohammed Amin Foundation, for the Video Footage and Editing of the Day’s Events.

As usual, members also had fun moments for the day too:-)WYA Rocks!
