The cut and paste from the meeting
(The real life of the meeting is in the chat box history at http://etherpad.openstewardship.net/October-2013-First-Thursday)
Some notes to encourage you to dip into the chat history
David and Goliath are two hand carts that I remember Tom raising money for several years ago. They provide a livelihood for some deaf youths he works with. He gave an update and future plans. We also talked about motorised carts, and John Dada's interest in working with roadside mechanics and apprentices.
Ken, Tom and Julliet all have close connections with Nairobi, so we touched on the tragedy at Westgate.
Thinking of violence we thought of Nigeria, and current problems there.
Sectarian violence is often fuelled by unemployment, so we returend to that theme. John Dada is trying to tackle it at Fantsuam - Dadamac Knowledge Centre - Learning for Livelihoods
