Rose Chege, Tatua Community Organizer in Ngong, reflects on a leadership team meeting.
In Ngong we have been facing a challenge in that the Leadership Team wants to act quickly to get resources donated from the government or other people to solve the problem of getting kids back into school. Jacob and I are trying to remind them about the larger goal. I felt successful at the latest team meeting when we talked about why we were doing this work.
The whole team has a clear picture of why we are running this campaign, not to improve education for 1,200 Kids but to do this keeping in mind that our long-term goal is to heal and bring the community together so that they can solve any problems with available resources that are around and within them.
