The Kenyan Mom’s Kids Book Club Launches A Fully Fledged Library

In Collaboration With Seedlings Kindergarten And Junior School

The Kenyan Mom’s Kids Book Club has today, 31st May 2013, launched a fully fledged library. Book club members will now enjoy a wide choice range of books including Kiswahili and French reads. With the diminishing library services across the country and the reading culture by children being overtaken by technology and television, the Kids Book Club and Library is at the forefront to ensure that we bring back reading and proper writing to our children, with an aim to bring up an informed generation.

The library, which caters for children between Ages 4 years to 13 years, which are the most important ages for instilling good habits.

Over and above the library services the following are added benefits for the Book Club members:

– Children will be able, through their parents, to borrow books online, and they can have the books delivered anywhere within the Central Business District and Westlands.

– The Book Club will be holding regular writing competitions on book summaries, that we will publish on The Kenyan Mom forum, rewarding the best done summary.

– The Book Club will be holding events for the members as well as career days, where they will have parents in different fields talk to children.

– Book Club Members will be able to visit companies to see how products come about, and thereafter they get to write what they understood from their visit. The aim of these exercises is to encourage children to be more observant of their surroundings.

– In time, parents and children will be able to enjoy benefits and discounts from our partner outlets.

These are among the few benefits that the Kids Book Club members will enjoy! If you would like to have your child enrolled, please send an e-mail to info(at)kenyanmom(dot)com or fill in the form at: http://kenyanmom.com/kids-book-club/ and they will get back to you with details.

Wanadamu Turns 4

On this, 4th day of November 2011, Wanadamu turns 4 months since it’s inception. Your contributions in whatever capacity be it in terms of time, registration and ideas has been phenomenal and has seen us not only increase our capacity but also successfully attend to 55 appeals in Nairobi, Nakuru, Eldoret, Mombasa, Meru and other parts of the country. With word spreading out resulting in increased request for blood donors, we initiated phase 3 of Wanadamu where we conduct manual registration of willing donors in our database to reach out to those who are not active online/on social media.

We would like to thank the Village Market for hosting us on the 21st and 22nd October 2011, Wamathai for hosting us during his October event at the MJ Centre on the 22nd October 2011, the Picha Mtaani crew for hosting us during the Heal the Nation documentary launch at city hall way on the 23rd October 2011 and finally the Kinanda Festival team for having us during their event at K.A.R.I (Kenya Agricultural Research Institute on the 30th October 2011. We would also like to thank every single person who did a post on face book, twitter or blogged about Wanadamu before, during and after the ‘Heroes donate blood’ online Campaign. Special thank you to the team of 11 who played a key role in making the online campaign a success. This, together with the media coverage we have gotten has seen the database grow by 10% between October 20th and November 4th. During our interactions, various questions and requests for clarification have been forwarded to us, which has prompted us to create a ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ article, in a bid to address standard questions and concerns. Please feel free to write to us at wanadamu@kunavijana.org, or fill in the contact form with questions you may have that we haven’t addressed here and we will be happy to address them.
