30th July 2009
Dear Friends of KCDN,
Today is my birth day and on this day, I want to look back at the efforts that we are trying to make with your support at KCDN.
Without your support, nothing could have moved in the last 18 months. As Friends of KCDN, I want to share my appreciation with you. You have made us strong and moving.
Last month when things were looking gloomy for us, you came in very strongly and very swiftly and we were able to pay our rent arrears. We were also faced with some other arrears for furniture which we know we will pay with your support.
As I celebrate this day, I want you to help us move From Talking to Tasking. By ourselves, we cannot do anything. But as a team, we can move the masses and help make Kenya a beautiful place.
At KCDN, our main forte is child support. On December 4th, we will host the 2nd edition of KCDN Child Support Initiative. On this day, we will give educational materials such as books, stationery, uniforms, shoes and socks to 1950 children who have come to us for support.
We do not care where these children come from. All we know is that they are Kenyans and they are orphans or they are in dire need. And, we simply offer KCDN to be the medium of choice through which you can give hope to a needy child, a needy mother. That is our satisfaction.
On 5th September, these children, their parents and the residents of Komarock will come together to say thank you to the community for the support that they have received. Together with Friends of KCDN, we will all clean the Komarock Canal and plant trees along the Canal as well. We will also encourage the residents to each plant a tree at the family compound and that tree to become the responsibility of the child at home.
To enable us do this, we need a lot of support in terms of mobilization, logistics and tasking.
As we look forward to working closely with you, we want to thank the following people for their support to us in the month of July;

Thank you so much. You made our work fairly easier and you made a clear statement that we can actually move From Talking to Tasking.
As we appeal for your continued support and partnership, let us come together and clean our environments on 5th September 2009. If you cannot make it to KCDN, do something at your residence.
We thank you for getting time to visit our blogspot.
God bless you all.
