Temmy Ethiopia
Dear Don,
It is wonderful to mail you again. Greetings from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia – the land of new flower.
This is a report of happenings around me for the 1st quarter of this year.
I'll start with ITech Ghana, our correspondence in Ghana have made me to understand that summer time will be the best time to have ITech as it will afford every youth the opportunity to attend as schools will be on vacation then. Note that, we are working with a school that will be giving us accommodation and that means that their students have to be on vacation for them to give us accommodation.
Also, an interesting fact is that the Government of Ghana used our proposal to stabilize the ICT in Education programme. That is credit to A Ray of Hope UNESCO Youth Ambassador for the Culture of Peace.
Right now, I write from Addis Ababa in Ethiopia, I traveled here on the 12th of February first for the NOVATECH Conference, Africa ICT Market place
Attached is a comprehensive report of my outings in Addis Ababa.
Thanks so much.

TENS of thousands of families in kenya including kisumu have been
forced to vacate their homes in a hurry due to ongoing political
violence and genocide after stolen Presidential election results
Kofi Anam and his tem are genuine for peace and justice talks but
the Government is not.
Some of the victims have been extra judicial killed by police and
military teams as they escape from public functions .No press
freedom among others.
Many families have no food, clothes,water and others . We are
grateful to Janet Fiedman who have done her best for the School run
on charity since 1996. We pray for her including Don and others for
their peace and other support.
What can bring peace is only fresh Presidential elections or
military solutions from UN and other external links to restore
truth.stability . justice , and other humanitarian needs now in
danger for almost every kenyan.
The inflation rate is up and shortages .Children are in danger of
being hit by live bullets used by security forces on civilians at
random .Janet and Don are great.
Kenya is not the same as before .Looting and burning og homes and
houses . Kenyans are against kikuyus,kambas and kisiis who voted for
stolen Presidential elections against other kenyans . Cases of
genocide and war crimes are increasing including civil dis
obedience. Our Project is in danger of closing . We are broke.
We need your support including prayers as we foght for peace and
love .

New Friends India

Dear Don,
 
This is David from India a friend of sister Melanie. Melanie was with us couple of days back. She asked me to contact you about Poor & Street Children’s Educational project. There are poor laborers who live by road side in our city. There are more than 100 homes with small huts near to our home. There people work hard every day for more than 10 hours in the hot sun and earn only about 2 pounds a day, which is really very sad. This people’s children are neglected and were not able to go to schools, as their parent’s income is not even sufficient for their food and shelter. Melanie visited these people when she came in last year.  I have a great desire to give education to these people as this is only way they can earn jobs and can survive themselves in the future.
Melanie told me that you support these children. You can help these children by giving clothes, Slates, Books, Pens, Pencils and Food.
Please let me know if you need more information and how you can help.
Look forward to hear from you
David, India
