The books which those children are reading were donated by Margret Coady with which I have started a reading and recreational program for the poor kids in my village, as well as feeding program for they don’t get three meals a day.

I am in a retreat in Mukumu kakamega in western Kenya for one week praying and recollecting myself to resume work in January. The retreat ends with renewal of my vows of service, chastity, poverty and obedience. We had a celebration together with the children and in my own village I have started a feeding and recreation program for young children who were being faced by anger. I was also given some books by Margret Coady for the young kids which now are keeping them busy and a teaching them how to read. (above) I have been on the move trying to see my parents and my brothers and sisters and also visiting some children in their homes where they stay with the guardians. We are coming together again on seventh January when we resume running of the programs after the festive season.

 

Launch of St Charles Lwanga Children’s Centre website

Today on the launch of the St Charles Lwanga Children’s Centre website www.lwangachildren.com we are proud to report that yesterday director Brother Kennedy Omondi received his diploma in Development Leadership from St Francis Xavier University and the Coady International Institute, in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada. (Br Kennedy is in the back row far left).
The Coady International Institute’s 19-week diploma provides a critical and reflective framework for experienced development practitioners to enhance their leadership competencies and their abilities to motivate and support people in creating a better world for future generations. The program is inspired by cutting-edge action research and deeply rooted in a community-driven approach that draws on over 50 years of experience. The program strengthens the capacity of development leaders to ask the questions confronting development and social justice today – and proposes pragmatic strategies for change. Throughout the program a collaborative relationship is fostered among facilitators and participants to draw out lessons and insights from their rich and diverse experiences.
All participants choose a combination of mandatory, elective, and specialized courses. This flexibility enables each participant to customize the program to match personal and organizational learning needs. This allows everyone to deepen their understanding and develop skills in particular aspects of development work.
