Ongoing community conversations: Stimulating & deepening community capacity to Care and Change.

In September 2008, The Kenya NFT gathered in Mombasa to participate in the Knowledge room moderators training.During this time the team immersed themselves into a local community(Truck stop) for SALT visit. The encounter with the neighborhood was inspiring to both the team and the community.....'Ongoing community conversation are a good thing in this community. It will help people
to wake up and acknowledge their is a problem that needs to be addressed.... I have
been around here for 4 years.I have gone through temptations of Truckers coming with
alot of money .They come to me and say, leave this small business you are doing. I will
provide all you need as long as you continue to be my sex partner. ..Some come with an
intent of buying and in the long run seduce you. If you refuse,they will never buy any
item from you. I thank God because over the years i have not fallen into that trap. I have
been able to go through these hardships... I have also lost many friends who did not
stand strong. Some are sick as we talk. I always visit them and have linked them to a
treatment centre here in town....My dream is that we can educate our people through
talking to them and this is what is needed here. I strongly believe that, NO one from
outside can solve our problem here . its only us who can do that... Thank you for visiting
and talking to us.We invite you any other time’,
