This is going to come with several Educational Initiatives, Capacity Buildings and Exchange Programmes that will be beneficial to our Members.
During our 1st Board Meeting we got very insightful guidance from the Commissioner of Cooperatives and the Secretary to the Poverty Eradication Commission. We had deliberately invited them to take us through the ropes and make us understand what setting up a Sacco entails and more so, what it takes to fight for Poverty Eradication. We are truly indebted to these State Officers for sharing their valuable insights.
Later in the afternoon, I met with Ms Suzzana Owiyo, to put into proper perspective the up coming World Environment Day activities. Suzzana and a Team of Women Celebrities will be joining in the World Environment Day by hosting the Soko Bila Waste Campaign. We will be at Wakulima Market on the 5th June 2013 as from 7.00am and it will be exciting watching Suzzana and a team of Women celebrities vending their wares at the Market. This will be followed by a Clean up at the Market.
We are inviting several Partnerships and we will be communicating this in good time.
We at KCDN and The Clean Kenya Campaign- TCKC do firmly believe that we can make our Markets and Neighbourhoods clean if we so wish. To this extent, we will be Partnering with The Suzzana Owiyo Foundation, the Media Personalities and Corporates to drive the Soko Bila Waste Campaign across all our 47 Counties.
Let us join hands and work for a Clean Kenya as we celebrate our 50 years of Independence.
