Hello everyone. Have a great school year.
I would like to give a brief Reply to Paula.
I was not able to go to Kenya this year, but I was happy to be part of the 2008 and 2009 teams. There were several things that impressed me. The work that the EBB teams did was outstanding. We came together as a team and I believe delivered workshops that were very well received by our Kenyan colleagues. The Kenyan teachers work very hard under difficult conditions compared to Canadian schools. They displayed wonderful professionalism. I believe in the value of actually going to Kenya, meeting the teachers there, and working with them. Without this person to person contact, I believe we would be less effective. We did make a difference. If you are able to go to Kenya to be part of a team, please consider it. Though I have been a teacher for well over 30 years, I found it to be one of the best educational experiences I have had.

Hi Paula,
We met lots of Samburus last summer while we were conducting professional development workshops for the teachers around the Mount Kenya area. I have some great pictures of them. They danced for us, and I bought a wooden 'pillow' from a gentleman. I can still smell the wood smoke in it a year later!

Dear collegue, as a Peer Educator and administrator working with YOUTH EMPOWERMENT STRATEGIC SCHEME,a community based organisation whose vision is to reduce HIV/AIDs infections among youths through establishment of Peer education programs that disseminate information on reproductive health and HIV/AIDs to among organized youth groups, i feel Privileged to have attended last years TWB-CANADA seminar. I am excited that it is happening again this year and i'ld like to encourage more Kenyan teachers and commmunity facilitators to take part in this forum, as it builds ones capacity to be a better facilitator either in a classroom setting or even in the open space.

I am quite encouraged to participate again this year and probably facilitate an ICT session as i identified a dire need for the same among my country men and women.

We, Youth Empowerment Strategic Scheme believe in the power of networking and partnering and therefore i call upon interested individuals with creative and noble ideas to enhance our operations to reachout to more youths in the society. Feel free to contact me on tonnxy@gmail.com;+254 721122950 for more information.
